A study project has been established to meet the need of state highway and transportation departments regarding the assembly, analysis and evaluation of operating practices and the legal elements of special problems involving right-of-way acquisition and control and highway law in general. A 1976 publication, which was a product of this project and which fills a void in American legal writing, collects the cases dealing with highways and provides a clearinghouse for analysis and discussion of the rules of law announced therein. This publication will consist of 3 volumes: The first two deal principally with problems in the field of eminent domain; the third volume will deal with highway-related problems in the field of contract law, environmental law, intergovernmental relations, and tort liability of state highway departments and their employees. The selected papers published in the above publication are also published as National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Research Results Digests.
