An SC Department of Transportation project federally funded that exceeded $9.8 million dollars. This project was designed to make the roadway safer by removing trees from areas close to the roadway and expanding “clear zones”.

Atlas Surveying’s work included: Staking cable median barriers, staking of guardrails, staking median/outside clearing limits, staking silt fence, as-built of cable an steel beam guardrail, existing topographic survey of 65 acres, and an additional as-built/ topographic survey and quantities survey.
