A special flight was commissioned by CDOT to obtain the aerial photographs that were used as the basis for the design visualization effort. Three views were selected. One view captured the entire project including both connections. The two other views provided the project context, locating the project in relation to easily recognized landmarks.
POITRA plotted the trail from the Engineer's design plans carefully accounting for cut and fill slopes in the earthwork drawings. The low angle of the winter lighting in the base photographs was excellant for emphasizing the new grading. The overpass structure was completed using 30% structural drawings. All the work was accomplished using traditional digital painting techniques. This procedure was repeated for all three photosimulation views.
Thanks for doing everything so fast!”

The entire project was completed under difficult time constraints in order to meet scheduled meetings with project stakeholders.
Graphic artists at POITRA then designed poster sized displays for printing as information panels. The finished display panels were used in meetings with Jefferson County, trail enthusiasts, nearby residents and other public stakeholders.
