Section 9: TxDOT LandsAnchor: #i1000957
Occasionally in the widening or relocation of highways, portions of TxDOT property may be needed for highway right of way. In such cases, determine if the state's land rights permit use for highway right of way, or if the original deed to the state limits its use. If sufficient rights are vested in the state and the Support Services Division - Facilities Management has approved reduction in size of the site, then assign a parcel number to the taking, calculate the size of the parcel and remainder, and notify the ROW Program Office accordingly. Revise the original property description to show the taking and return it to the ROW Program Office. Obtain a copy of the original instrument whereby the property was conveyed to the state in order that this information may be placed on the project right of way map. After this is done, ROW notifies the Support Services Division - Facilities Management and Financial Management Divisions of the reduced size of the site so their records show the current site status.
