CNC prepared the preliminary and final design for the widening of this arterial intersection with an estimated average daily traffic of about 100,000 vehicles. The widening required acquisition of right-of-way from eleven (11) separate parcels. Work performed by CNC to assist the City with this right-of-way acquisition included the following:

  • CNC met with the owners and tenants of all affected businesses to discuss the project impact on their property and the various options for mitigating the impacts.
  • CNC performed a detailed topographic field and aerial survey of each site.
  • CNC performed a detailed boundary survey of each parcel.
  • Upon final design approval, CNC prepared the legal description and plat for right-of-way acquisition for each parcel.
  • CNC worked closely with an independent real estate appraiser to assist with the negotiations.
