Right of Way Acquisition Continues
2/13/2016

The Right-of-Way acquisition process is still underway on the north segment. The project team is currently performing appraisals (and independent review appraisals to confirm values) and working with each property owner to acquire the permanent Right of Way and temporary easements that are necessary to begin construction.

This is one of the most time-consuming phases of the work, but it is also critically important that it be done right to ensure that all impacted property owners are properly compensated.

In the meantime, work is continuing on the other project segments. The design plans for the Middle Segment (From Craft Road to Winchester Road) are 90% complete, and the plans for the South Segment (From Shelby Drive to Craft Road) are roughly 60% complete.
