Each Safe Routes to School (SRTS) project is required to have right of way clearance before it goes to bid advertisement. Right of way and easements can take place on government land or private parcels.
More right of way information can be downloaded from the Project Administration Documents Web page.
Public Right of Way
If the right of way or easement takes place on public land, the project sponsor needs approval from the land owners to do the project. A Joint Project Agreement can fulfill this approval function, and may set the basis for the right of way clearance memo.
Private Right of Way
On private land, the clearance requires that the sponsor acquire the property per federal standards, or obtain an easement, for the SRTS project.
If a sponsor has Certification Acceptance, they get their own right of way clearance, and verifies to ADOT that such clearance has been obtained.
