I-290 Right-of-Way Condemnation

Efficient traffic flow along major expressways is critical to commerce and quality of life. Unfortunately, when roadway widenings are required the abutting land and business owners are directly impacted through property condemnation. Appropriate compensation for those takings is determined via a thorough evaluation of the before and after conditions of the impacted sites. Highest and best use determination from land planning, transportation, and financial perspectives are used to assess the impact and identify the requisite compensation to mitigate the effects of the widening project on the subject parties.
