Forte & Tablada Presents at 2016 Louisiana Transportation Conference


Forte & Tablada’s Jonathan Coco and Joey Coco, P.E. discussed Laser Scanning the I-49 Connector at this year’s Louisiana Transportation Conference in Baton Rouge.  The I-49 Connector is a highly congested corridor and warrants an out-of-the-box approach to minimize surveyor interaction with the motoring public and the inconvenience of lane closures. The LA DOTD is utilizing terrestrial based laser scanning technology integrated into traditional topographic survey workflows to collect topographic data for approximately 20 miles of roadway surfaces located within the project limits. Learn the basic workflows, benefits, challenges, and intangibles associated with using these advanced technologies for transportation projects.
