A series of laboratory tests were conducted to investigate the geotechnical engineering characteristics of muskeg soil for construction machinery widely distributed in cambridge region in Canada which makes problems in construction works. Physical characteristics of cambridge region muskeg soil were measured in terms of such categories as nature water content, organic content, specfic gravity, liquid limit, and plasticity index. As the test result, it was found that nature water content, organic content, specific gravity, liquid limit, plasticity index, and compression strength were 50.8~343.8%, 12.1~42.5%, 1.76~2.57, 46.6~440.2%, 25.6~280.5, , respectively.
