ROW CSJ Costs Versus Construction CSJ Costs

Preliminary engineering includes preliminary work required in preparing right of way data such as right of way surveys, property descriptions, maps, subsurface utility engineering (SUE), preliminary right of way cost estimates, and staking right of way. Charge all preliminary engineering costs to the construction CSJ function 130. Right of way acquisition costs must be charged to the ROW CSJ. This work can include:

  • appraising
  • negotiation
  • closing of transactions
  • title policies
  • title certificates
  • relocation
  • ED proceedings
  • utility agreements

Do not incur or obligate any right of way cost without a formal, prior release from the ROW Program Office in Austin. Requirements that must be fulfilled before issuance of such release are discussed in the following sections.
