We are pleased to announce a $10.1 million settlement for our clients in an eminent domain matter involving VDOT’s condemnation of approximately 24 acres, along with four acres for storm water management and drainage, for the construction of a commuter parking lot built as part of the expansion of Interstate 66.

After a year of meetings with VDOT and its PPP partner, FAM, the parties were able to minimize damages to the residue by agreeing on shared use of the storm water management pond built by VDOT. Blankingship & Keith attorneys Paul Terpak and Patrick Piccolo were instrumental in creating this innovative solution, which saved millions of dollars, and led to a fair settlement of the case.
