Working closely with each of the design and construction groups within the New Hampshire Department of Transportation, the Utility Section identifies utility facilities, and develops and implements utility relocation plans during the design and construction phases of transportation projects. The Utility Section also implements the Department's railroad crossing improvement program. In addition, engineers working within the section design highway lighting and perform hydraulic engineering analysis. Visit the Utilities Section.
The Survey Section collects spatial data and provides the basic framework used to map, build, and maintain New Hampshire's transportation systems. The geodetic component of the Survey Section makes extensive use of Global Positioning System (GPS) technology to establish a highly accurate control network and supplies geodetic coordinates for all projects undertaken by the Department. The Survey Section operates a full-time GPS base station for the benefit of mapping activities within the Department as well as for outside governmental and private sector mapping and surveying groups.
