Easements and Rights of Way are essential for the safe construction, operation, and maintenance of roadways and other publicly owned infrastructure such as pipelines and drainage channels. Acquisition, development, and maintenance of easements is an important task for engineers involved with public works. Although proper allocation of resources for public facilities is a priority for the engineering community, allocation of time and money, to include consideration of life-cycle management of easements, is only recently coming into focus as property owners, regulators and other stakeholders take a greater interest in the built environment.

This presentation will provide information on the social, political, and engineering aspects of easements and rights-of-way and will include a case history on how a large public utility and the largest landowner in Fairfax County came to agreement on management of pipeline easements to the benefit of both parties and the citizens of Northern Virginia.

WHERE: ASCE Headquarters - 1801 Alexander Bell Drive, Reston, Virginia, 20191
