Woolpert Awarded $2M PennDOT Photogrammetry Contract

HARRISBURG, Pa.- The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has signed Woolpert to one of three statewide photogrammetry contracts. The five-year, $2 million contract is for geodetic survey and photogrammetric mapping, including stereo-compliant aerial and mobile lidar collections.

Mike Zoltek, Woolpert project manager, said that the services requested under this contract include, but are not limited to, vertical and oblique aerial photography acquisition, aerial lidar and mobile lidar acquisition, geodetic mapping, conventional surveys, Global Positioning System (GPS) surveys, digital map compilation and digital terrain model creation.

“These services will be performed specific to individual projects—along 5-, 10- or 15-mile stretches of road—to support engineering design and survey,” Zoltek said. “We have an experienced team and the capacity to provide the quick turnaround needed.”

Woolpert has multiyear photogrammetry contracts underway with departments of transportation (DOTs) across the country, including Florida, Minnesota and Virginia. Zoltek and fellow Woolpert Project Manager Judy Beale will support these projects for the Pennsylvania DOT.

“One of PennDOT’s biggest concerns is the ability to meet schedules with a quality product,” Beale said. “We’re fortunate to understand what’s required with these collections not only in Pennsylvania but around the world. We’re excited to be able to provide the most accurate data to fully support their transportation infrastructure.”

This contract is now underway.
