Section 5: LeasingAnchor: #i1003217
Transportation Code, §202.052, authorizes TxDOT to execute a lease with private utilities for placement of its facilities in TxDOT right of way, or for use of facilities owned by the State.
Utilities must initiate any leasing efforts, and a lease must benefit TxDOT. TxDOT will continue to grant approval of those uses of public right of way that have been granted to the utility industry by State statutes, and that conform to the UAR.
TxDOT may be willing to lease State-owned conduit space to utilities. Contact ROW Division for further information.
