  • How Surveying Helps Build Roads 


    Surveying is the first step before the building of the road begins. This first survey is done in the planning stage. During the construction phase, another survey is done. This survey will determine how much dirt must be moved. It also provides the grade and level the dirt must be at. The survey information will help determine the best location where the least amount of dirt must be moved. 

    Construction phase surveys tell us the optimum areas for the following: 

    • Slopes and contours 
    • Turns 
    • Tunnels in mountainous areas 
    • Bridges 

    Maintenance and rehabilitation phase surveys is used for positioning.
