A colorful discussion on different types of subsurface interference encountered in infrastructure projects along streets, roads, and highways. The development history of New York City spans more than 400 years. The five boroughs of New York City cover an area of more than 300 Square miles. There are more than 6,000 miles of streets, roads, and highways that criss-cross this metropolis. This Presentation utilizes maps, photo’s, engineering drawings and utility records to demonstrate subsurface interference that can be predetermined prior to the Design and Construction of NYC DDC Infrastructure projects. Subsurface Interference Investigation from an Engineering perspective includes buried tracks, pier foundations, abandoned and active utilities, tunnels, vaults, and other man-made and natural obstructions.
Come join us for an evening of education, professional camaraderie and fun!!
