Over the past week or so they have been digging up and hauling out dump trucks full of dirt from under the viaducts. Does anybody know what this is about? Soil testing? Getting rid of contaminated soil? Unrelated project?

It's where the contaminated (or potentially contaminated) soil from other holes in the area gets stored before being trucked away. Most recently it's where the soil dug out from the site for The Arc was stored. That location has been used on and off for several years.

Once they get past the organic and contaminated layers, down to the glacial material, it generally doesn't seem to have to be stored, presumably because it's 'clean' and can go straight to off-shore dumping.
