Survey Resource Guide

MCDOT Surveying Information Resource Guide


There are basically 3 areas where MCDOT contains useful surveying information depending on what you are looking for.
  • As-Built Information
  • Right of Way Information
  • MCDOT Survey Section Information

Survey Section


The "Survey Section" at MCDOT performs approximately 5 to 20% of the survey work on the total roads in MCDOT's capital improvement budget in a given year. The rest of the work is performed by consultants/contractors. The survey information obtained by the consultants/contractors should be reflected in the "As-Built" and "Right of Way" information.

Include Information in Email

How to Obtain


  • "As-Built" information. This can be obtained through our customer services / front desk here at MCDOT. You can either:
    Email

  • "Right of Way" information
    Contact Ken Green at 602-506-0388.
  • "Survey" information
    MCDOT survey information general consists of the background notes and information used to facilitate a right of way or construction project, with a few very big exceptions (see below). In theory, all the pertinent information from the survey should make it to the right of way drawings and/or as built drawings but this is not always the case. Sometimes there is useful information found in the field notes but not always.

    If you are interested in a particular area or street. Please provide the above information via email to Jerry Shultz.
