ADOT Engineering On-Call

Meteor Crater & Painted Cliffs Rest Areas | Northern AZ


Premier completed topographic existing utilities and aerial mapping of the Painted Cliffs Rest Area in Lupton and the Meteor Crater Rest Areas in Winslow. We obtained existing planimetric feature locations and surface elevations from aerial mapping, and surveyed building corners, interior pump house measurements, finished floor elevations, walks, ramp details, underground utility depths, storm structure inverts, signs (with descriptions and sizes), and other detailed features that were not visible from aerial photography. We set 21 targets for aerial photography and mapping and surveyed to controlling Public Land Survey System (PLSS), National Geodetic Survey (NGS) and Interstate 4 0 (I-40) right-of-way monuments.

Mapping depicted all the existing topographic and utility information, as well as the existing I-40 right of way. The project included coordination with utility providers, ADOT’s on-site staff, ADOT permit personnel and Navajo Nation permit personnel. National Geodetic Survey (NGS) benchmarks were missing in the Painted Cliffs area, so site coordinates and elevations were autonomously derived from post processing of static GPS survey observations.

…responsiveness and attention to the project needs were exemplary, quickly earning my trust that my projects were in good hands.
