A route survey is a survey conducted across a narrow strip or ribbon-like area to identify and construct a travel and communication path.
Standards of Our Route Survey Service
- We do essential Research
- Fieldwork Procedures
- Measurement Requirements
- Route Survey Control
- Line or Lines
- Apparent Boundary, Right of Way and
- Occupation Lines
- Current Deed of Record
- Section Lines
- Surveyor’s Report
Advantages of a Route Survey
- Current ownership and parcel identification of potentially affected owners
- Recreate control alignments from original project plans
- Cross references recorded LCRS with individual plats
- Common project coordinates for future Construction/ Right of Way layout
- Graphically shows the relationship between route survey control alignment and section lines
- Establishes reference ties to recreate all alignments at a later date
- Limits client liability

In the final stage, the work may consist of the following..
- Locating the centerline, usually marked by stakes at the required interval called Stations.
- Determining elevations along and across the centerline for plotting profile and cross-sections.
- Plotting the profile and cross-sections and fixing the grades.
- Computing the volumes of earthwork and preparing a mass diagram.
- Staking out the extremities for cuts and fills.
- Determining drainage areas to be used in the design of ditches and culverts.
- Laying out structures, such as bridges and culverts 8. Locating right-of-way boundaries, as well as staking out fence lines, if necessary.
Purposes of Route Survey
- Roadways, highways, and railroads.
- Transmission lines for communications, fuel, chemical, water, and electrical needs.
- Canals, waterways, drainage ditches, and sewers.
- View easements, air space easements, and egress easements such as approach routes.
- This is done on a larger scale and under different survey conditions (intended to isolate specific subjects). Sea ice conditions, river flood boundaries, and forest fires are made. Also surveys of air routes for specific purposes such as recording centers
The preliminary survey for this work takes the form of a topographic survey. The ground-level survey has been widely used for centuries for mapping remote areas.
