Hello all, I have been tasked with resolving R/W for a state route, although I have no experience doing any sort of resolution. I have a general idea of the scope of the project along the corridor, although, the record maps are not on a coordinate system, as well as not having an indication of bearings and distances along the project scope. I have acquired Tax/APN maps which have allowed me to acquire some maps that seem like they have useful information, such as an old map with bearings and distances that correspond to the project scope corridor, but not in its entirety, as the corridor enters a city, upon which the map lists it as “Block 1” with acreage. In addition, the county that the work is in has sparse information, as I have contacted them for more information on section corners, as their website, as confirmed by them, has everything that they would have. Looking further into maps I have pulled from reading deeds and the Tax/APN maps, I have a lot of lots and blocks that have private property corners, basis of bearings listed, as well as DOT provided control on some points that were used to determine a small portion of the R/W along the corridor, but no maps indicating the found evidence, which are: nail, PK nails, and a brass tag stamped with a RCE number. Even with this little information, I am not sure how I would resolve the R/W, as most of the maps are very old, and do not indicate corners, lots and blocks with bearings and distances, etc. The record maps indicate 100′ of R/W dedicated, as well as the old maps indicating that they are 100′. In addition to having found this information, I do not really know what would be the next step, as the work is for ADA ramps at intersections, which is where they primarily want the R/W resolved, although I am not sure if you could just resolve a small portion of the R/W specifically at the intersections, or if I would have to resolve the R/W in its entirety along the entire scope of the project. Again, my experience is lacking, and I am not sure what way to look at this. In addition, after having collected all of my record information, what would be the next step? All of the maps seem to be on assumed coordinates, so would I have to do some sort of rotation? (What I’ve heard piecemeal from other surveyors) How would I go about making sure that it is all done correctly? I need to also provide search coordinates for the field crew to go and help me resolve the R/W, such as the section corners, property corners adjoining the state route, and R/W monuments, so I assume I more than likely have to have something drafted to get this going… I hope this isn’t too scrambled, but if anyone is willing to help and needs clarification, I would be glad to do so.
