Jarrod Compton leads the Utility Management group for Atkins North America. He has been surveying and mapping ROW and utilities since 2003 primarily in Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. He began 3D modeling utilities in 2008 and has developed existing and proposed utility models for many transportation projects since that time. His most recent and challenging project has been to develop a comprehensive 3D model of existing utilities for segment 3 of the North Houston Highway Improvement project for all the major freeways encircling downtown Houston Texas. The model was integrated into 3D online GIS viewer, and is being used by multiple project stakeholders from TxDOT administration to utility relocation designers.
