Plainfield Service Plaza Right-of-Way Survey


West Pennsboro, Pennsylvania<br style='line-height:2px'>Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission

HAKS provided as-needed land surveying services to the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) to determine the location for property takings for the new right-of-way surrounding the Plainfield Service Plaza located off the turnpike in West Pennsboro Township in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania.

The project required coordination of multiple baselines to be surveyed and verified. Deeds and maps were plotted and examined for calls and references to prior surveys and subdivisions. HAKS employed Leica 1230 GPS survey-grade equipment and a conventional total station to establish horizontal control working from the existing turnpike baseline. Existing corner markers were located using rapid static observations. GPS static and rapid static observations were recorded on different days at different times to optimize satellite positioning and eliminate erroneous signals. GPS observations were post-processed using the latest Leica LGO software. Right-of-way markers were set with witness posts at angle points along the PTC right-of-way. Survey field work and calculations were performed in accordance with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Transportation Bureau of Design Surveying and Mapping Manual Publication 122M.

HAKS completed the survey and right-of-way plans in AutoCAD (Version 2008).
