LAG Chapter 25 has been revised -- again.
(April 25, 2013) An updated version of the LAG Manual has just been released. Please delete existing references or bookmarks to the LAG Manual and replace it with this most recent version.
No, there is unfortunately no side-by-side comparison available to compare this with earlier versions.
Go here http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/LocalPrograms/LAG/ and note the “Download Individual Chapters” link. Now you can download Chapter 25 by itself if that’s all you need.
Remember: the LAG Manual is being updated constantly. The current version will undoubtedly be short-lived, so expect it to be replaced before long. A notice will be emailed out to all our regular users whenever this happens.
Addition of Chapter 17 to the Right of Way Manual
The first of three new chapters has been added to the WSDOT Right of Way Manual. Chapter 17 deals with the R/W certification process; it also adds a number of new forms that Local Agencies will need to use on new projects. A link to the Right of Way Manual is provided in the sidebar, left. Remember, this is the Right of Way Manual, not the LAG Manual.
For projects already in progress, you will not need to fully adopt the new procedures. For all new projects where your right of way phase commenced no earlier than April, 2013, all elements of Chapter 17 apply. If you have questions, contact your Local Agency Coordinator.
Note: separate portions of the new chapter are devoted to WSDOT use and to Local Agency use. Although these are clearly denoted, take care to use the appropriate section when preparing your agency's certification.
