Roads and highways are frequent users of linear rights-of-way. For this reason, Departments of Transportation often insist that you prove or provide your prior rights inside the scope of a new project. In some states, by having prior rights inside the linear right-of-way, the local Department of Transportation responsible for buidling the new project will be obligated to pay for the relocation of any and all assets that interfere with their new plans. In the reverse, should you not possess prior rights, you may have to be prepared to pay all of the associated fiscal responsibilites tied to relocating your asset to a new location.
Public or Private entities that find themselves in this situation may recognize a lack of expertise in this niche field and therefore find the need to hire competent consultative support for their endeavors.
