Geophysical Characterization of Tunnel Construction Site, Louisville, Kentucky

University of Missouri, Rolla (UMR) proposes to acquire electrical resistivity and refraction tomography at the Kentucky Department of Transportation (KDOT) tunnel site, Louisville, Kentucky. These geophysical data will be processed, analyzed and interpreted with the objective of mapping and characterizing soil and bedrock at this construction site. The main project deliverables will be a suite of maps and geologic cross-sections depicting variations in soil thicknesses and lithology and rock quality. Maps showing the locations and orientations of solution-widened joints and other potential engineering hazards will also be presented.
