Project Details

MFS’s survey team performed a field survey to locate the apparent above ground physical features, such as buildings, curbs, edge of pavement, drives, striping, sidewalks, fences, walls, utility/light poles, street trees, tree lines, and street furniture. Features under any raised structures, including bridges, were surveyed to include the roadway feature. Cross sections of paved surfaces were surveyed at a minimum of 50’ intervals and at low/high points. Spot elevations were obtained at a spacing sufficient to develop contours at an interval of one foot. Breakline features such as top/bottom of curb, edge of pavement, top/bottom of slopes/swales/banks walls, etc. were also located. At waterways the surveys extend to the edge of water.

MFS utilized NYS GIS tax parcel records to display lots within the survey limits.

MFS’s field team located surface utilities such as manholes, catch basins, headwalls, valve covers, utility/light poles, hydrants, etc.
