Highway engineering, design and right-of-way acquisition are not a matter of immediate concern to you. It is only when you own property through which a highway may be constructed that you begin to consider road building and right-of-way acquisition from a different and very personal viewpoint. The State, because it is acting for the public and in the public interest, must acquire the property at a fair market price. This price is arrived at after a careful appraisal study of the property. The procedure of right-of-way acquisition is divided into four main categories, each requiring special work by trained personnel. The steps involved are right-of-way design, appraisal, relocation assistance and acquisition. These separate steps will be presented in the following pages.
