HIGHWAY CONTRIBUTION TO NGS OBJECTIVES

The annual capital outlay for roads and bridges in the United States is over $12 billion. Buried within this figure is a considerable amount for surveys of all types. Most of these are single-purpose surveys; but, many are high-order location surveys of substantial length and incorporating the latest survey techniques and modern instrumentation. It is the objective of the Federal Highway Administration to secure cooperation of the National Geodetic Survey with the individual state highway departments so that many of the single-purpose, low-order surveys can be extended and converted to surveys of higher accuracy, and that high-order surveying be done to standards of accuracy set forth by NGS and that this data be recorded to the degree necessary to permit permanent monumentation. This will serve the dual purpose of assisting NGS in attainment of its objectives and minimizing any duplication in future survey efforts by NGS or the states.
