The Survey Manual has been developed as a guide to provide uniform design practices for Department and consultant personnel conducting surveys and aerial mapping for SCDOT projects. The designer/surveyor should attempt to meet all criteria and practices presented in the Manual.
The Manual presents most of the information normally required for preparation of survey requirements for a roadway project; however, it is impossible to address every situation that the designer will encounter. Additional survey requirements are also covered in the SCDOT Highway Design Manual, which outlines certain procedures and special cases.
