Rails and Roads Challenges in the 21st Century (a California perspective) Presented by CALTRANS - Don Grebe
Rails and Roads A Brief History Who was here first? Ground to Air Competition vs Partnership
Rails and Roads Californias Checkered Past The Schenk Decision 1925 Cal Supreme Court decision Case elements and applicability Impacts on operations at grade vs over or under Utilities and other leaseholds Testing
Rails and Roads Californias Strategic Future Proposition 1B $19 Billion Voter approved bond measure Improve Mobility throughout State Currently $4 Billion in projects 67 projects state wide In Construction by 2012 40 have Rail Involvements
Rails and Roads Issues Valuation Billing Communication Process Improvements
Rails and Roads Valuation Easement Valuation - Before & After Transverse vs Longitudinal ATF and other Methods Bifurcate Engineering vs Real Property
Rails and Roads Billing Preliminary Engineering Flagging & Inspection Rights of Entry
Rails and Roads Communication Early and Often PID Stage Field Review, Data Sheet Estimate Identify Prelim. Engineering Costs PA&ED through P.S.& E. Coordinate Plan review and approval Keep Structure Design in loop and vice versa Choreograph R/W requirements
Rails and Roads Communication (Contd.) R/W Phase Appraisal/Settlement considers impacts on operations HQ Consultation prior to Resolution of Necessity (RON) Involve HQ R/W Structure Agreements as needed for C&M and/or Service Contracts
Rails and Roads Process Improvements Identify $$ for Preliminary Engineering Establish Master Agreements (similar to Utilities?) Admin Processing Fee?
Rails and Roads Process Improvements (Contd.) Broaden Partnering and PRTs to include other Railroads Follow-up on RR Functional Council Action Items.
Rails and Roads Conclusion Politics makes Strange Bedfellows Partnering vs. Poisoning Stay on Track
