The Missouri Highway Department (MoDOT) proposes to construct a diamond interchange at the intersection of Highway 61 and 47 in Troy Missouri. In order to construct this interchange, MoDOT may need to acquire property from some property owners and the final design is still in progress.
What Are My Rights?
Many property owners do not realize they have a right to compensation for temporary and/or permanent easements placed on their properties. If even a portion of their property is used by MoDOT, owners are entitled under the Constitution to receive just compensation.
Just compensation includes not only the value of the property lost to electric utilities, but also damage done to the remaining property. Property owners should consult an attorney before signing any documents effecting their property. Attorneys at Denlow & Henry provide an initial consultation at no charge to a property owner.
