BLN completed turnkey real estate services (right-of-way management, appraising, review appraising, buying, and relocation) for the East End Crossing and Downtown Crossing over the Ohio River, as well as ancillary road and bridge work. BLN completed more than 200 acquisitions and 115 relocations, plus required right-of-way engineering, in 14 months—60 days ahead of schedule. Of the 115 relocations, five were historic home moves. BLN’s project controls experience on mega-projects and tight financial controls enabled the Ohio River Bridges project to not only become a reality, but also earn several awards, including the International Right-of-Way Association with the “Project of the Year” award. Additional services included survey and right-of-way engineering.
