Survey Resource Guide
MCDOT Surveying Information Resource Guide
There are basically 3 areas where MCDOT contains useful surveying information depending on what you are looking for.
- As-Built Information
- Right of Way Information
- MCDOT Survey Section Information
The "Survey Section" at MCDOT performs approximately 5 to 20% of the survey work on the total roads in MCDOT's capital improvement budget in a given year. The rest of the work is performed by consultants/contractors. The survey information obtained by the consultants/contractors should be reflected in the "As-Built" and "Right of Way" information.

- "Right of Way" information
Contact the MCDOT front desk at 602.506.8600 and they will route your inquiry to the appropriate Department.
- "Survey" information
MCDOT survey information generally consists of the background notes and information used to facilitate a right of way or construction project, with a few very big exceptions (see below). In theory, all the pertinent information from the survey should make it to the right of way drawings and/or as built drawings but this is not always the case. Sometimes there is useful information found in the field notes but not always.
If you are interested in a particular area or street. Please provide the above information via email to Brian Dalager.
