what we do

Alignment & Right-of-Way

Supporting acquisition and design of transportation corridors

Parametrix surveyors use the latest equipment and technology to determine route alignments, right-of-way, and property easements. We specialize in right-of-way research and analysis and preparation of plans and legal description exhibits for the acquisition process. Route surveys include existing and new highway corridors, recreational trails and railroad right-of-way, utility and transmission corridors, and easement alignments.

​Puyallup, Washington
Client: ​​City of Puyallup

The Shaw Road extension project involved 0.6 miles of embankment, a bridge to cross the BNSF rail lines, stormwater detention/treatment, and new property acquisition. Surveys were performed to determine individual property ownerships, as well as existing public and railroad right-of-ways. Parametrix surveyors worked with the Bureau of Land Management to resolve disparities between BNSF ownership and a Donation Land Claim. Surveyors provided topographic mapping for the design team and construction staking for the contractor.
