A Road Survey legally creates a new road or new boundaries for an existing road such as a widening or a new alignment of the existing road. When a Municipality decides to create a new road or alignment there are a number of steps to go through. If boundaries are changing or created, an Alberta Land Surveyor (ALS) will need to be contacted to determine the boundaries of the affected existing properties, place boundary markers for the new road boundary, and produce and register a Road Plan with Alberta Land Titles to show the new road boundaries and change the affected adjacent property boundaries.
During the New Road Creation or Road Alignment Process, when should an ALS be contacted?
Once agreements with adjacent Landowners for the new road or road alignment have been completed, or at least a few weeks before construction starts, an ALS should be contacted. The ALS will reference the position of the affected existing boundary markers. Road Construction will DESTROY boundary markers so having an ALS reference the boundary marker position prior to construction will Save Significant Cost to the Client, and create less work for the ALS to complete his or her part of the project. Timelines can also be greatly reduced in this way, as most of the Road Plan can be made once this information is collected.

How much is a Road Survey?
The cost of a Road Survey depends on the size and shape of the new road or alignment, the physical features and topography of the road and the adjacent properties, the property boundary marker information available, and the location of the road.
