R&M prepared right of way base mapping for this 11 mile long project, which required detailed research on the history of road construction and homestead settlement to determine the basis of the existing ROW. The project affects many un-subdivided tracts of land for which no ROW exists by plat or document. In such cases, an easement by prescription was claimed, based on long term public use and maintenance. This project will be constructed in segments – Phase I ROW maps have been submitted and Phase II plans are in progress.
