Not found. The new corner plaza would appear to have completely obliterated it if even existed when that work was done. If still there, it is probably encapsulated under the cement walkway (bring a metal detector!).

I lived in this area when the benchmark was first set by CADT. The area has changed dramatically since then, and the east side of Saratoga-Sunnyvale Road is no longer Scofield Drive, but is an access road to Armadillo Willy's BBQ, Portal, Inc., and nearby apartments.

The curb and sidewalk have been regraded, due to the extra lane for northbound traffic, and the benchmark was likely removed during that process.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The NAVD 88 height was computed by applying the VERTCON shift value to the NGVD 29 height (displayed under SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL.) The vertical order pertains to the superseded datum.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
