I have seen the surveyors out around 216th on Hwy 1, again in the last week, and one of them was carrying a shovel. Hopefully they were uncovering an overgrown survey point for construction to start.
I have no real answer for you, except that, if survey work is being done in a major way (have you seen them in one spot or all over?) it means that the design process is far from complete - the design team would be waiting for the survey dwgs in order to push the conceptual design drawings forward towards construction documents. For large but simple civil work, this need not take more than a few months.
And no, construction never begins with a surveyor and his one trusty shovel.
