Costello performed boundary and topographic surveys on an 11-acre site for the proposed administration building stadium improvements for Deer Park ISD. The scope included establishing the existing property boundaries and easements, and locating all buildings, adjacent street pavement, parking lots, sidewalks, storm sewer, sanitary sewer, utilities, fences, trees, pipelines, and detention pond. The survey was performed to support design and construction of a new administration building and improvements to both stadium entrances.

IH-45 at Tellepsen

experience costello engineering and surveying in Texas

Costello performed design and hydrology surveys in support of an investigation to evaluate and quantify the amount of storm water runoff entering the existing storm water pump station (and surrounding drainage areas) within the Brays Bayou watershed.  Lane closures were required along the feeder lanes due to the confined working area and traffic flow. Manhole and inlet details, pavement cross-sections, and bayou cross-sections were collected to support the modeling of the hydraulic system.  The intersection includes depressed feeder lanes, elevated main lanes, and a railroad line crossing at grade.
