The Geotechnical Section performs subsurface investigations to obtain:
- General information on subsurface soil, rock, and water conditions for proposed highway locations,
- specific information on the subsurface conditions of soil and/or rock properties that are important to the project design, and
- specific information on the subsurface conditions of soil, rock and water conditions in areas where problems are encountered, i.e. – landslides, pavement failures.
These crews work a ten-hour, four-day week continuously throughout the year and are on constant statewide travel Status.
