ORC’s experience is vast on federal, state, and local levels in preparing and implementing right of way procedures and programs. Though much of our reputation has been earned on the Federal level, our experience with “local public agencies” (LPA) throughout the country is unparalleled. ORC was awarded a contract by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to prepare a local public agency guidebook for utilization throughout the United States on federal aid projects, and this guidebook still serves as the foundation for the approach taken by nationwide LPA’s on roadway projects.

Additionally, ORC has worked with countless municipalities, county engineering departments, city redevelopment authorities, water and sewer departments, economic development agencies and local utility companies on a host of projects of varying purpose and complexity. Our primary consideration when applying our expertise on the local level is the advancement of the affected community as infrastructure evolves. It is this single-minded purpose that ORC stakes its reputation, and effectively supports its clients with exceptional results.
