​The Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT) is responsible for administering the City's ROW Abandonment Program.
The majority of the City's ROW has been dedicated to the City, meaning that it was not purchased. When ROW is abandoned at these locations, the land is split evenly to the adjacent property owner(s), should City Council approve the abandonment request.




For additional information about submittal requirements and to obtain the  Right of Way Abandonment Petition form, please contact: Casey Mashburn at 704-336-8348 or Esteban Valverde at 704-432-0961.
