WSDOT Freighthouse Square
This existing Freighthouse Square building is part of the architectural/engineering duties for WSDOT's High speed Intercity Passenger Rail Project-Point Defiance Bypass. The existing Tacoma Amtrak Station will be relocated within a portion of the Freighthouse Square building, which will be adjacent to the Point Defiance Bypass Alignment.
Furtado & Associates (as L&A at the time) provided detailed topographic and utility base mapping within project limits. Surveying included cross-sections at 50-foot intervals with ground shot intervals as well as utility potholes. Base maps included topographic features and elevations within the work vicinity, providing sufficient detail for the design of underground and overhead facilities in addition to surface features and above ground items.
