This two-day introductory course provides Local Public Agencies (LPAs) with a working knowledge of Federal requirements and procedures for acquiring property for Federally-assisted transportation projects. The course focuses on applying the Uniform Act and related Federal Regulations to specific situations and issues. Designed as a hands-on, highly interactive learning experience, instructors guide participants through a series of right-of-way (ROW) problem solving exercises and large group discussions. We encourage those with limited ROW knowledge to register for the free NHI 141045 web-based training course in advance of this instructor-led course session.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the legal basis for land acquisition by a governmental entity
  • Assess the impact of a roadway improvement as it relates to the Uniform Act
  • Sequence the right-of-way process (ROW) within the overall project development process
  • Determine the appropriate valuation process for ROW acquisition
  • Apply the Uniform Act requirements for ROW acquisition
  • Apply the Uniform Act requirements to relocation assistance
  • Determine the agency's responsibilities for managing real property


Those within local public agencies who are responsible for acquiring right-of-way for federally-funded projects, as well as those responsible for oversight of LPAs, in addition to FHWA personnel, consultants, Federal and State staff and other interested parties.
