Chimney Rock Rd, Phase 2 (under construction)
This 4.1 mile long-roadway was approximately 21 ft wide and consisted of a series of curves alternating with longer straight sections. GUY’s design improved safety and connectivity by reconstructing and widening the lanes, adding shoulders, correcting sight distance, improving geometry, and correcting drainage problems. The new roadway consists of two 12 ft lanes with 4 ft shoulders.
The GUY team provided the following land acquisition services for 25 parcels and one BIA parcel:
- Verify and contact property owners
- Coordinate appraisals and appraisal reviews
- Coordinate title work and title curative
- Prepare and make offers
- Negotiate with property owners and close on property
The project had several mortgage releases, ownership changes, a major DHS judgement, and a BIA parcel that slowed the project schedule. Communication with the District Attorney’s office, Housing Authority, and the Cherokee Nation Attorney General’s office was necessary to prevent further delays.
