US 550 Corridor from NM 313 to NM 528
When increasing traffic from the growing suburb of Rio Rancho began to create unsafe conditions on a portion of US 550 through Bernalillo, NMDOT developed a project to alleviate congestion and improve safety along the corridor. CobbFendley’s involvement in this milestone NMDOT project extends to the Phase 1A Initial Evaluation of Alternatives completed in 2014. Since our initial SUE Level D records research and plotting of existing utilities, our involvement and scope of services has expanded with each subsequent project phase to include utility designating, utility locating, utility coordination, and utility certification as a project subconsultant; working directly for affected utilities to provide utility location, surveying, and relocation and permitting services; and working with surrounding municipalities to accommodate the project’s progressing design. Our survey services included Geodetic survey and aerial survey control, aerial topographic surveying, location and supplemental topographic surveying, existing fixed right-of-way, right-of-way mapping, right-of-way take staking for appraisal, monumentation maps and staking.
