What are the preliminary engineering and design phases of a project?

The preliminary engineering and design phases of a project are the early stages of a project. This is where the government or the condemning authority is going to go out and collect data. They’re going to try to define the scope of their project and see what the right of way needs might be. Because it’s so early in the process, it’s a good time to potentially go out and discuss alternative right of way alignments or driveway closures or median closures that may affect your particular property. It’s also a very good time to do pre-condemnation planning, which could be very beneficial to the property or business owner involved.
