The Right-of-Way Section is responsible for the acquisition of real property needed for transportation projects. This process includes title abstracting and property owner contacts, preparation of right-of-way plans showing what property is needed, appraisal of the property needed, preparation of legal documents, negotiation with the affected property owners, relocation of displaced families and businesses to suitable replacement housing or facilities, coordinating the eminent domain process, and coordinating the property management activities such as building sales or demolition. Other functions include court liaison support for compensation appeals, the sale and lease of surplus highway right-of-way, maintaining the existing right-of-way inventory, and researching and providing right-of-way information.
