WHERE, OH WHERE, IS YOUR RIGHT OF WAY LINE?

Right-of-way lines in the U.S. are poorly described and inadequately monumented. This results in much litigation and immense re-surveying cost to the abutting private property owners. Civil Engineers are responsible for determining the methods to survey, describe and monument rights of way. Improved methods are available and should be used. One such method is briefly described. Resolutions by the ASCE Committee on Pipeline Location and the Committee on Land Surveying are quoted. A proposed ASCE Policy on "Right of Way Identification for Transportation Facilities" is suggested. Comments, criticisms and suggestions are solicited.
