Each year, more than 1.5 million visitors travel to Moab, Utah to experience the natural red arches and pinnacles of Arches National Park. To improve the visitor experience at the Park, the National Park Service plans to construct a new 1700-foot bike path connecting the Arches Visitor Center with an existing bike path in Moab Canyon. DJ&A was hired to complete survey and mapping of the proposed project area.

DJ&A crews completed topographic survey for a 7.1-acre area, including existing roads, trees, buildings, and underground utilities. A high definition laser scanner was used to collect 360-degree photos of the project area so Park staff could remotely tour the site as needed.

Key Services

  • Topographic survey using a high definition laser scanner

Value Added

Due to DJ&A’s long history of serving the National Park Service’s standards and needs, survey crews were able to quickly mobilize to the site within a week of the Notice to Proceed and performed the office mapping ahead of the required deadline.
