LABELLE -- Beginning the week of June 20, AIM Engineering and Surveying will be performing surveying services on Wheeler Road from 13th Place to 23rd Terrace, approximately 2.7 miles, in Hendry County.
The work is being performed as part of the design work for the reconstruction and paving of Wheeler Road.
As part of the surveying effort, AIM Engineering & Surveying will be required to go on private property to locate survey monumentation or to re-establish survey monumentation.
Please note surveyors are permitted to go on private property per Florida Statute (F.S.) 472.029 under certain conditions.
