CMS8: Advanced Geotechnical Methods of Exploration (A-GaME) Implementation

Brief Project Description: FHWA is encouraging State DOT’s to increase their awareness and usage of underutilized technologies, including geophysical techniques, to supplement information obtained during traditional subsurface exploration programs. Differing site conditions due to variability of bedrock elevation, groundwater elevation, and stratigraphy profiles can result in increased risk and cost during construction. By optimizing geotechnical site characterization with proven, effective exploration methods and practices, we can mitigate risks and improve reliability of information. This AID grant focuses on assisting VTrans in bringing these underutilized technologies into our toolbox for use during the preliminary phase of a project.
