Project Details

MFS performed a field survey to the locate the apparent above ground physical features, such as buildings, seawalls, revetment, bulkhead structures, curbs, edge of pavement, drives, striping, sidewalks, fences, walls, utility/light poles, street trees, tree lines, and street furniture. Spot elevations were obtained at a spacing sufficient to develop contours at an interval of one (1) foot. Breakline features such as top/bottom of curb, edge of pavement, top/bottom of slopes/swales/banks/walls, etc. were located. At waterways the surveys extended to the edge of water. Surveys were coordinated with existing transfer bridge geometries and with ferryboats’ waterline at the edge of the main deck.

A bathymetric survey was performed with multibeam and side sonar. The bathymetric survey contoured at a one-foot interval of the waterway bottom. The bathymetric survey was coordinated with MFS’s land side survey and was in the same coordinate system and elevation datum.
