STATE RIGHT-OF-WAY ORGANIZATION

SOME DATA PERTINENT TO RIGHT-OF-WAY ADMINISTRATION ARE DISCUSSED. THE SURVEY SHOWS THAT IN 29 STATES, THE CENTRALIZED STATE RIGHT-OF-WAY FUNCTION IS PLACED DIRECTLY UNDER THE CHIEF ADMINISTRATOR OR HIS ASSISTANT. IN 18 STATES THE CENTRALIZED RIGHT-OF-WAY ACTIVITY IS SUBORDINATE TO A DIVISION OR DEPARTMENT THAT IS OFTEN FUNCTIONALLY RELATED TO RIGHT-OF-WAY. THE SIZE OF RIGHT-OF-WAY DEPARTMENTS VARIES FROM STATE TO STATE, AND WITH THE MAGNITUDE OF THE HIGHWAY PROGRAM PROJECTED AT A PARTICULAR TIME. THE SALARIES ARE REVIEWED FOR RIGHT-OF-WAY ENGINEERS AND ASSISTANT ENGINEERS. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT WITH LAND ACQUISITION ACTIVITIES AT UNPRECEDENTED HIGH LEVELS, THE STATES POSSESS THE OPPORTUNITY OF REMEDYING THE LAND ACQUISITION INEFFICIENCIES OF THE PAST.
