Burgess & Niple (B&N) provided professional services for a 3-year, statewide survey and mapping contract that involved the following surveys:
B&N is serving this contract with multiple survey crews from its 15 offices. Managed from B&N’s Mid-Atlantic regional headquarters in Dulles, Virginia, surveys have been completed in ten states and the District of Columbia.
Additional responsibilities included condemnation, construction, interchange, and right-ofway stakeouts; geotechnical test boring locations; and profiles and cross sections. The Route 197 project in Bowie required B&N to establish four horizontal and vertical control points using GPS relative positioning techniques as the basis for field-run topographic surveys.
The Baltimore Beltway I-695 project involved design of additional travel lanes from Route 10 to I-97. Services included approximately 2.5 miles of low-level aerial photogrammetry, field-run topographic survey, horizontal and vertical control, and location of wetlands along I-695 in Anne Arundel County.
On another project, B&N survey crews established traverse stations and collected field data along Route 450 west of Annapolis. Route 450 is a busy rural roadway with very poor stormwater runoff. B&N crews located drainage facilities and other topography within MD 450 rights-of-way.
