Mapping utility lines takes time, but not nearly as long as digging up everything underground. While it can vary based on where you’re at in the survey process, mapping utilities should take less than half of the total project time. That’s means if you’re spending eight hours mapping utilities across four miles of roadways over two days, it will take approximately 15 minutes per mile to survey via GPS positioning technology.
