Change is coming to Columbia
According to the South Carolina Department of Transportation "The Carolina Crossroads I-20/26/126 Corridor Improvement Project is the number one interstate priority for South Carolina." Construction for Carolina Crossroads is expected to take place over five phases between 2021 and 2029.
Landowners can expect to be contacted about the acquisition of their property between now through 2022. SCDOT may refer to 'Right of Way' when referencing the acquisition of your land. Phase I construction is expected to begin in 2021. If you are contacted about Right of Way or selling your land as part of this project, Lewis Babcock can ensure your rights are vigorously represented.
Typical SCDOT Process:
Land Being Taken by the Government?
It is our goal to protect your property rights. We are here to ensure that your rights are respected, and that you receive fair compensation for any property(home or land), taken by the government. We handle every kind of eminent domain or Right of Way case including temporary takings, partial takings, total takings, or easements, and settlements.
