Right of Way - I-10 and SR 210 Study

Acquisition - Acquiring Real Property

What if my property is impacted?

Arizona Department of Transportation’s Right of Way (ROW) acquisition program requires payment of market value for businesses and residential properties. ADOT’s Relocation Assistance program includes working as early as possible with property owners and providing benefits to the extent allowed by law to cover actual, reasonable moving costs and related expenses. Additional details about the property acquisition process can be found on ADOT’s Right of Way/Properties web page or by calling 602.712.7701.

When will I know if my property is impacted?

Actual acquisitions will be defined when final design plans are prepared. Design and construction projects will be programmed in the ADOT Five Year Construction Program based on availability of funding and other related factors. If the recommended alternative is selected, this project would be divided into several smaller projects and constructed in phases because of the estimated high total cost of completing either of the build alternatives at one time. If the Environmental Assessment for the project is approved, the smaller projects will be prioritized and ROW/parcels for each project would then be acquired.

When would I be contacted about my property?

Assuming the recommended alternative is selected, ADOT will contact owners of affected parcels during preparation of the final design plans. As previously noted, because of the high cost of this project, it would be divided into smaller, more affordable projects. The timing of the smaller projects will depend on prioritization by the Pima Association of Governments and the availability of funds to build each project. When a smaller project has been selected and the design is identified, the ADOT Right of Way Group will then order an appraisal on the directly impacted parcel(s). An ADOT appraiser will contact the property owner to set up a meeting for inspection of the property. This is typically the first point of contact.
