Route Development and Analysis
Keeping you on the right path
Route development and analysis begins in the feasibility stage, when our GIS group collects data for the area of interest and maps it out
to examine possible impacts. For example, transportation data is used to determine the potential number of crossings, which
can give a rough estimate of bores and HDDs. Mapping High Population Areas (HPA) and Other Populated Areas (OPA) allows
us to anticipate potential High Consequence Areas (HCA) and increased class location. We then share this information with project managers and
When routing is initiated, this geospatial data enables our team to choose the path that best suits the client, the local
communities, and the environment. In the pre-construction stage, GIS specialists collaborate with other PCS groups and
third-party contractors to perform further studies of PIs, field bends, trench breakers, and more.
Our route development and analysis can help lay the foundation of any successful PCS project.
