Introduction This report includes the investigation of the borrow site on project NH-2-013(060)243. The borrow site included in this report is the Haag, Hahne, and Lautt borrow site. The field and subsurface investigation was conducted on 8/27/2018 and 8/28/2018 in order to develop this report.
Sampling and Testing Procedures: Borings were conducted with a six inch solid flight auger. Soil samples were taken at each boring location. Borings that had significant changes in soil type were split into separate samples. Moisture content samples were taken at 1 foot intervals.
The samples were submitted to the laboratory for determination of AASHTO classification, moisture content, dry density, sieve analysis, and Atterberg limits.
Borrow Sites These sites were drilled on 8/27/2018 and 8/28/2018. A total of 8 borings were conducted for the Haag site, 9 boring for the Hahne site, and 2 borings for the Lautt. Detailed data is in Appendix B.
Summary and Recommendations
Haag Borrow Site Recommendation A majority of the soils encountered in the Haag Borrow Site were lean clays and fat clays that classified as A-7-6 soils. The soils have a marginal swell potential. The majority of the soils have a liquid limit less than 50 and have low moisture contents. The soils generally have a moisture content 0 to 6 percent over optimum.
The soil conditions are marginal. These soils are typical of clays found in North Dakota. The material in this borrow site will perform adequately as subgrade material.
Hahne Borrow Site Recommendation The soils encountered in west portion of the Hahne Borrow Site were lean clays that classified as A-7-6 soils. The soils have a low swell potential. The majority of the soils have a liquid limit less than 50 and have low moisture contents. The soils generally have a moisture content 0 to 6 percent over optimum.
The soil conditions are marginal. These soils are typical of clays found in North Dakota. The material in this borrow site will perform adequately as subgrade material.
The soils encountered on the east portion of the Hahne Borrow site are silty sands and clayey sands. These soils have high sand and aggregate percentages and low silt percentages. This location will perform adequately as a subgrade materials.

Only two locations were able to be bored due to standing corn. The soils encountered in the Lautt Borrow Site were lean clays that classified as A-7-6 soils. The soils have a low swell potential. The majority of the soils have a liquid limit less than 50 and have low moisture contents. The soils generally have a moisture content 0 to 6 percent over optimum.
The soil conditions are marginal. These soils are typical of clays found in North Dakota. The material in this borrow site will perform adequately as subgrade material.
