 	Highway Road Right of Way | Road Acquisition Relocation

ORC has provided right-of-way consulting services to numerous state departments of transportation across the nation. Our company is known for its ability to manage large-scale turnkey projects that are driven by construction deadlines. We have the proven ability to keep large projects on schedule and within budget. ORC was one of the first companies to develop project tracking for right-of-way projects. We offer customized computer parcel-tracking systems that are designed to meet the reporting needs of each client.

Our performance in providing right-of-way services to departments of transportation has given us a broad range of experience under both federal and state guidelines. We understand that each state or municipal agency has some unique reporting requirement that must be met by the consultant. In the past, ORC assisted Florida in recovering millions of dollars in matching federal funds (FAINS) in jeopardy of being lost due to noncompliance with federal guidelines.

“. . . Congrats to all of you for your accomplishments (on SH 130), you have pulled off something that NOBODY, including me, thought could be done. The success of the project was directly in (your) control . . . and you came thru with flying colors . . . your group and the Turnpike team are the best of the best . . . We will be forever grateful for your efforts.”

Timothy J. Weight, Director of Turnpike Construction for Austin District, Texas Department of Transportation

“I found the representatives of O. R. Colan Associates to be well-trained and totally professional in their dealings with landowners. They have proven to be an asset in the Virginia Department of Transportation’s land acquisition program.”
