Verascan's Aerial Surveying Techniques Help in Boulder City Bypass Construction
February 22, 2016
Las Vegas, NV.
A 4.5 mile stretch of the RTC I-11 Highway Boulder City Bypass project recently proved to be too big for conventional survey methods. Las Vegas Paving Corp., who was awarded a 12.5 mile stretch of the project called in Verascan Inc. a Las Vegas based aerial data company to complete an airborne survey of a problematic stretch of proposed road. Verascan used its unique and innovative workflow to get the critical data back to Las Vegas Paving in a short amount of time which allowed construction to continue without delay.
The bypass is a significant project because it would be the first portion of original roadway for I-11, a proposal to link Mexico and Canada by way of Phoenix and Las Vegas, the two largest metropolitan areas not connected by an interstate highway.
The designated I-11 route would use most of what today is U.S. Highway 93, which already is a four-lane divided highway for most of the 206 miles between Boulder City and Wickenburg, Ariz., that would have to be upgraded to interstate highway specifications.
