The cut and cover construction technique to be used involves opening the
ground surface to an adequate depth to permit excavation support, and then
covering the surface opening with temporary decking so traffic and pedestrian
movement can continue while excavation and construction proceed. Comment

The tunnels would be subjected to “extremely high” levels of groundshaking.
However, the tunnels would be designed to withstand effects from the design
earthquake on the San Andreas Fault (Magnitude ~7). No identifiable damage to
the BART/Muni Metro subway was caused by the Loma Prieta earthquake in
1989.5 The Enhanced EIS/EIR Alignment would be designed and built to current
seismic standards to withstand the design earthquake, which would reduce
potential Project ...

The 1 8.0 (29 km) mile starter line for the Los Angeles subway (L.A. METRO), is
planned to run from the Union Railroad station near City Hall to North Hollywood
near Universal Studios. The authors of this paper were charged with preparing
seismic design criteria for the more than 20 section design firms assigned to the
project. It was found that existing codes and standards almost exclusively
addressed surface structures such as high rise buildings or nuclear power plants,
but that ...
