State and DOT Level Administration of Land Ownership Issues Across Navigable Waterways

This research project will examine current legal right of ownership issues arising in right-of-way land acquisition for highway projects crossing navigable waterways. The objective of the research is to help the State and Department be better positioned to deliver its program in a timely manner, simplify administrative understandings and efforts between agencies, reduce unnecessary proceedings, and address property ownership with broad judicious consideration for the private and public rights, therefore resulting in significant cost savings and time for delivery.
