About Us

Survey Operations is a section of the Department of Transportationís Office of Construction. There are five locations throughout the state that surveyors work from and where survey information is available. They are Central Surveys in the Newington Headquarters Building, District 1 in Rocky Hill, District 2 in Norwich, District 3 in New Haven, and District 4 in Thomaston. Surveying is comprised of boundary, geodetic, location/photogrammetry, and construction disciplines and are staffed by a cadre of Licensed Land Surveyors.

Survey Operations provide support for construction and design projects as well as providing mapping and surveying services for the Division of Rights of Way, Office of Maintenance, and the Bureaus of Policy & Planning, Aviation & Ports and Public Transportation. The Departmentís Survey Offices also maintain Right of Way mapping for the Stateís highway boundaries, geodetic control points, and state and town line data, along with ancient highway and turnpike records.

CGS Cards are available in every district and Central Surveys Office. Rights of Way maps are available in the town's survey district and in Central Surveys.
