Belsby Engineering works closely with utility providers and Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) to provide services required for Franchise Consolidation.  We have assisted WSDOT in developing the requirements of the Franchise Consolidation process through our early involvement in the program. Our Land Surveyors are tasked with determining right of way (ROW) as well as locating utility owned features within the ROW. They develop base mapping used to prepare plan sheets and Utility Facility Descriptions (UFD) to be included in the Franchise Consolidation.  Our engineers use this base mapping to perform Control Zone Calculations to determine hazard objects located within the right of way.

Hazards are analyzed through field review and Roadside Safety Analysis Program (RSAP) analysis to determine risk factors associated with each object located in the Control Zone. The RSAP analysis also includes important imformation outlining the Crash Zones and Clear Zones. That information is then incorporated into a Mitigation Plan detailing how each hazard will be addressed to finalize the Franchise Consolidation process. This is included in a Utility Object Relocation Record (UORR).

Our understanding of WSDOT’s needs in working through the Franchise Consolidation Process allows us to deliver the most cost effective product to our client. Belsby has assisted numerous utilities with Franchise Consolidation cost effective product to our client. Belsby has assisted numerous utilities with Franchise Consolidation cost estimates for their use in planning yearly budgets, and would be pleased to help your organization.
