B 70 RESET was part of the "benchmark bonanza" we stumbled upon at the western end of the old Seven Mile Bridge. There are four marks at this end of the bridge, two within less than a foot of each other (DUCK 2 and B 70 RESET). The mark is set at the extreme top of the northern wingwall of the old bridge, the western end of which is now used as a fishing pier. The benchmark is in good condition.

A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS, along with the following recovery note:

Recovered in good condition on the north wingwall at the west end of the old seven mile bridge. This section of the former bridge is now a fishing pier and part of a recreational trail. The current Seven Mile Bridge is directly south of the old bridge.
