The Pulaski Skyway, dedicated on October 11, 1933, is a vital link in the northern New Jersey transportation network, connecting Jersey City, South Kearny and Newark. Over seventy-five years old, the 3.5 mile long elevated structure is composed of 118 spans that carry Route 1&9 over the Hackensack and Passaic Rivers, the New Jersey Turnpike and several railroads. The Skyway was in need of major repairs/rehabilitation and was functionally obsolete, with narrow lanes and unusual left entrance and exit ramps that do not meet modern design and safety standards.
Robinson Aerial Surveys, Inc. (RAS) served as a sub-consultant on the team to complete the preliminary design for this project for NJDOT.RAS provided new color digital aerial mapping photography, analytical triangulation and topographic mapping services at 1”=30’ scale in MicroStation V8 format, as well as Mobile Mapping & survey services, utilizing a truck mounted Trimble Scanning System.
The RAS team utilized aerial photography and project DTM to create digital ortho-photo.
