The principle purpose of this report, Report on Highway and Bridge Surveys, is to provide a working guide for the highway engineer in designing and executing adequate and lasting survey controls for highway and bridge construction. It covers a broad range of topics related to highway surveys including state plane coordinates, reconnaissance, preliminary surveys, and location surveys. Equally extensive are the topics for bridge surveys, including reconnaissance, preliminary surveys, construction surveys with a focus on triangulation, and construction surveys with a focus on vertical control and other special control problems. This report is relevant to practicing engineers and researchers working with highways and bridges.
