SECTION A009: ROCKVILLE ROUTE, YUMA STREET ALTERNATIVES, SUBSURFACE INVESTIGATION
The report summarizes results of eight borings made in connection with a study of a series of possible alternatives for the Yuma Street link in Section A009 of Rockville Route connecting the subway on Connecticut Avenue with the continuation of the subway on Wisconsin Avenue within Northwest Washington, D.C., of the Washington Metropolitan Area Metro system. The investigation was made to generally assess subsurface conditions at the locations of subway structures in connection with an environmental impact statement. The report contains a series of geological sections illustrating four alternative positions for this connecting link, logs of the eight borings and a general discussion of anticipated subsurface conditions.
