Abstract : This report summarizes embankment features, design data, construction control data, and record test results. Construction equipment, construction procedures, significant construction modifications and changes, and notes are presented. The embankments were also re-evaluated using the design parameters developed from laboratory test results of record samples obtained during construction. The report can be used to provide information about the design and construction of the embankments for engineers unfamiliar with the project, for re-evaluation of the embankment in the future, if required, and for background data for design and construction of similar projects. Includes 45 plates.
