Rights-of-Way

Each year hundreds of individuals and companies apply to the BLM for rights-of-way (ROW) on or across public lands. A ROW grant is an authorization to use a specific piece of public land for specific facilities for a specific period of time. Currently the vast majority of the ROWs granted are authorized by Title V of FLPMA (43 U.S.C. 1761-1771) and the Mineral Leasing Act (Section 28 of the Mineral Leasing Act of 1920, as amended , 43 U.S.C. 185). It is the policy of the BLM to authorize all ROW applications at the discretion of the authorized officer in the most efficient and economical manner possible.
