Kansas high court sides with KDOT in condemnation case involving South Lawrence Trafficway: Lawrence Journal-World, Jan 27, 2017

The Kansas Supreme Court on Friday sided with the Kansas Department of Transportation and against a Lawrence construction company in a case involving land that was condemned as part of the South Lawrence Trafficway project.

Doug Garber Construction Inc. owned property in an area that was condemned for the project. Building the trafficway involved destruction of a portion of the Baker Wetlands, and KDOT was required to mitigate that by constructing replacement wetlands.

That involved realigning 31st Street, which required the condemnation of Garber’s property.
