Schedule Update: State Road 60 and US Highway 27 Department of Transportation (DOT) Taking

Written by: Peterson & Myers, P.A.

The Florida Department of Transportation (“DOT”) has released an updated schedule for the Eminent Domain taking at the intersection of SR-60 and US-27 in Lake Wales. The DOT will begin its appraisal inspections in April and May of 2018, and will begin settling cases and acquiring land this calendar year. If you are a land owner who is affected by this taking, you can expect to have DOT appraisers at your property over the next few months, and you can expect the negotiation process to begin. To ensure that your rights are protected and you are adequately compensated for your land, contact Deborah A. Ruster today, our Eminent Domain attorney who has 29 years of eminent domain experience and was recently appointed as the Vice Chair of the Eminent Domain Committee of the Florida Bar.
