You find all kinds of things under a 100-year-old roadway. Three abandoned oil tanks, an abandoned and deteriorated wood stave water transmission line, voids or empty spaces, unsuitable soils (old dredge spoil soils and organic materials), under sidewalk areaways, and shallow conduits (positioned too close to the surface; required relocating) have all been found under the roadway in the Rucker project. See the photo gallery.
