Utility Mapping Boston, MA

Subsurface Utility Engineering (S.U.E.) requires working together to plan safe and efficient surveys, which often means overnight shifts to minimize interactions with traffic. In addition to traditional utility mapping tools, Infrasense can deploy vehicle-based ground penetrating radar as part of SUE projects to report other subsurface conditions including pavement layer thicknesses and moisture ingress/ voiding.

Bridge Deck Scanning in Missouri

Infrasense was in Missouri recently completing GPR, infrared, and visual scanning of bridge decks in the St. Louis area. Below are sample images in the early stages of processing. The final deliverables will present the infrared and visual imagery for the entire bridge deck with all areas of delamination, patching, and spalling mapped and quantified.

Concrete Structure Scanning in Western Massachussetts

Infrasense is out in Western Massachusetts recently completing a comprehensive evaluation of a bridge, including GPR, impact-echo, hammer sounding, and rebound hammer testing on all pier caps, columns, and abutments. The nondestructive testing data will be used to provide detailed maps and quantities of the substructure element conditions. If you have an upcoming project where…


Utility Mapping Dorchester, MA

Infrasense recently completed a subsurface utility engineering (SUE) project on Dorchester Avenue in Boston, MA. The initial phase of the project included reviewing existing site drawings (QL-D) and a site survey to identify the location of relevant site features (e.g., water valves, fire hydrants, manholes, and telephone poles (QL-C). The second phase of the project…


Utilities Mapping Near Boston Tunnels

Infrasense recently completed a subsurface utility engineering (SUE) project in the vicinity of the four vent buildings that service the Sumner and Callahan Tunnels in Boston, MA. The project involved reviewing availability site drawings (QL-D), confirming the location of the site features (e.g., water valves, catch basins, manholes) (QL-C), and locating known and unknown utilities…


Utility Mapping Tynsboro, MA

Infrasense completed a subsurface utility mapping project at a large industrial park in Tyngsboro, MA using a combination of ground penetrating radar (GPR) and electromagnetic induction (EMI) locating methods. The GPR equipment included a 400MHz ground-coupled antenna mounted to a cart with an integrated distance encoder and GPS unit. This GPR antenna is capable of…
