- provide TxDOT a dated list of goods and property to be moved; and Anchor: #VJTBRIJJ
- inform TxDOT of any unusual conditions or special handling requirements that could affect the moving cost.
The department should:
- Anchor: #CWLYCUAX
- perform a pre-move, displacement site review, when possible, to verify the displaced property list and any special conditions and requirements that could affect moving costs; Anchor: #PEWYOJHN
