SR - 710 Tunnel Technical Study Presentation for City of Pasadena City Council January 26, 2009


Purpose of the study

Purpose of the study

  • Consider all practical routes for the extension of Route 710

  • Gather information on soil and sub-surface conditions

  • Provide for public input and involvement


Why tunnels

Why Tunnels?

  • Reduce impacts to communities and sensitive areas


Objective of the exploration program

Objective of the Exploration Program

  • A total of 5 potential zones will be investigated

  • Collect geotechnical, geological, and hydro-geological information for each zone

  • Information to be used for screening purposes


Exploration plan zones

Exploration Plan Zones


Key factors influencing tunneling

Key Factors Influencing Tunneling

  • Faulting

    • Fault displacement

    • Rupture zone length

  • Uniformity of geologic material

  • Potential for adverse tunneling conditions

    • Flowing/squeezing soils, boulders

  • Properties of geologic materials

  • Groundwater conditions

  • Hazardous materials


Geotechnical exploration program

Geotechnical Exploration Program

  • Data collection and review

  • Geologic mapping

  • Geophysical surveys

  • Drilling, sampling, and logging

  • Laboratory testing


Boring activities

Boring Activities

33 small diameter borings; six locations in Pasadena

Vertical and Inclined drilling

Each boring will take 7 to 10 days to complete

Work area is about 12 feet by 60 feet

Drilling performed daytime hours

8


Seismic reflection testing

Seismic Reflection Testing

  • 20 seismic reflection surveys; two locations in Pasadena

  • Non-destructive

  • Most Geophysical testing will be performed at night

  • One location per night

Summary Report


Recent findings

Recent Findings

Two superfund sites were identified

The sites are located within Zones 4 and 5

Groundwater in this area is known to be contaminated with Volatile Organic Compounds

Depth of groundwater ranges from 50 feet to 150 feet below ground surface

Tunnel is expected to be at about 200 feet below ground surface

Planned activities

Planned Activities

Proceed with the borings in Zones 1, 2 and 3.

Postpone borings in Zones 4 and 5, pending additional information related to the Superfund Sites.

Borings to be done by both Caltrans and CH2M HILL

Borings to begin in early January 2009

Each boring is expected to take about 7 to 10 days to complete
