Grade Separations


With increased traffic and train congestion, public agencies more regularly construct grade separations to improve flow and safety and avoid conflicts between traffic, pedestrians, and trains.  Although these grade separations result in improved circulation with fewer interruptions and increased safety, the projects may impact adjacent property and business owners, and traffic circulation in the community.  Public agencies rely on RWG lawyers to assist them through every step of the pre-acquisition process to ensure that potential title, environmental, and right-of-way issues are addressed early in the process, possession is secured on time, to address concerns of property owners and tenants, and mitigate traffic circulation impacts to the community.  RWG lawyers successfully represent clients in eminent domain proceedings in cases where property owners and businesses allege significant severance damages and loss of business goodwill claims.
