R&M is providing professional surveying and mapping services to develop engineering design level survey base mapping for approximately 12 miles of the Seward Highway from the South end of the Trail River Bridge to 1000’ past the Sterling Wye. The Seward Highway MP 25.5-36 Rehabilitation is a 3R project, funded by the National Highway Performance Program with State matching funds. The focus of the project is primarily on preservation and extension of service life of the existing facilities, with the possibility of adding passing lanes, pedestrian amenities and traffic calming in and around the community of Moose Pass.
Located 150 miles northwest of Bethel, the Hooper Bay airport sits on the banks of the Bering Sea. R&M is responsible for a combination of control, topographic, right of way and aeronautical surveys. The topographic survey consists of 350 acres at the airport, with an additional 300 acres at the proposed material site located 5 miles up the coast. The right of way mapping is a combination of an Airport Property Plan, a mile of rural road and a half mile of urban road. R&M will also complete an aeronautical survey.
The Nome Airport eALP project is part of an FAA pilot program to modernize the creation of Airport Layout Plans. This project required creation of an FAA Airports GIS database for inclusion into the FAA’s Airport GIS. The completed database will serve as the foundation for the electronic creation of all future ALP’s at the Nome Airport. This project is one of the first of its kind in Alaska.
