Integration of Right of Way Project Schedules for Decision-Making Purposes

There is a need for adequate tools to enhance right of way project planning and performance management in Texas. Recently completed National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Project 20-84 resulted in improved, integrated real property procedures and business practices in the project development and delivery process, as well as recommendations to improve property management practices. One of the NCHRP 20-84 products was a prototype, reference real property acquisition and relocation assistance work schedule that enables dynamic evaluations of what-if scenarios that can be used for decision-making during project development and delivery. Another product was a set of strategies to address issues and challenges that affect the timely, effective delivery of real property interests to transportation agencies. Research project 0-6892 compares the functionality of the project performance tools developed in NCHRP 20-84 against real property acquisition processes and schedules in Texas, expands the national research by including a risk-based approach for conducting what-if scenarios and sensitivity analysis, and tailors relevant strategies developed in NCHRP 20-84, to develop a management decision tool for real property acquisition management practices.
