The Seagirt Marine Terminal is constructed on reclaimed land on dredged spoil from the I-95 Fort McHenry Tunnel in Baltimore, Maryland. Three stabilization procedures considered applicable are prefabricated wick drains; lime columns; and compaction grouting. Wick drains were selected to stabilize the slurry and underlying subsoil. A test fill program was designed to check the effectiveness of two types of wicks, the amount of settlement and settlement time.
