Legal Problems Arising out of Highway Programs. Topic 25-04. Laws Governing Homeless Encampments in Transportation Rights-of-Way

The objective of this research is to produce a report that documents the laws, statutes, cases, procedures, policies, and other resources governing or addressing: (1) a transportation agency's prevention and/or removal of homeless encampments from transportation rights-of-way; and (2) the authorized use of transportation rights-of-way for homeless shelters and social services to assist transportation agencies in addressing safety, health, and public welfare issues and the ability of transportation agencies to control their rights-of-way. The research should also include a comprehensive overview of the types of legal claims against transportation agencies that involve prevention or removal of homeless encampments from transportation rights-of-way, and the authorized use of transportation rights-of-way for homeless shelters.
