Ian employs survey data to create and existing road corridor model based on the Civil 3D capability to now employ Feature Line as a Baseline. He then modifies the Regions in that and connects the existing model to a new road design model with new Regions for the intersection by employing Connecting Alignments and dynamic Profiles.
