Land Acquisition Policy

The County Engineer’s Office is responsible for the maintenance and construction needs of 271 miles of county roadway and over 300 county bridges. In performing these duties it is often necessary to purchase additional right-of-way for the building of wider pavement widths that meet increasing traffic and safety demands, and to replace deficient bridges.

If you own property or occupy a dwelling near a proposed road or bridge improvement, you should familiarize yourself with the working procedures of the County Engineer’s Office, and how you may be affected by the construction work.

This policy statement explains what your rights are as a property owner, and provides answers to some of the questions you may have about the land acquisition process.
