RIGHT OF WAY PROFESSIONALS WEEK
The second week of June is designated National Right of Way Professionals Week.
In order for pipelines, transmission lines or other facilities to be constructed on public and private property, landowners must give permission for the right of way. Most often, rights of way are easements granted by landowners to the developer, giving the utility permission to run wires, cables or pipeline across the landowner’s property. Right of Way Professionals around the world have been trained to secure property rights on behalf of third parties by negotiating these easements through negotiations with landowners.
