I have a law issue I need cleared up folks, and I am interested to see how you all interpret the law. I was recently awarded a handful of bid items, one of which titled "Preservation of Existing Monumentation" See the following documents for the Specification and the R/W Plat Spec%20from%20CTH%20T%20contract.pdf
Now, the R/W Plat clearly shows Temporary Limited Easement for the purposes on driveway construction and sloping. So the plan is to change the slope of the land at the R/W, agreed? Then all of those respective lot corners (not shown as found or set on the R/W plat) will be knocked out as part of the planned contruction!
Ok, moving on, the spec does not say ANYWHERE that I have to replace the existing monumentation if it disturbed or destroyed, only to document the results before and after, but on a side note (I work for the grading company as a Registered Land Surveyor!)
So, to me, this seems like a big setup, I report how many irons have been disturbed or destroyed, then the Engineer/Owner will make the grading company pay to replace the monumentation (making a Plat of Survey for the entire right of way affected)
