110/105 Freeway Interchange, Los Angeles.
The CLS Public Sector Division has a proven track record of successful public infrastructure project completion that includes large highway expansion projects, site acquisition for fire stations and parklands, along with acquisitions and relocations for roadways, sewer lines, water ways and water lines, drainage improvements projects.
When public entities partner with CLS, they can be assured that their public sector project will be completed on time and within budget. We recognize the needs of a client may range from advisory service at the beginning of a project through negotiations and real property project certification at the end. Projects can range in size from one parcel acquisition or relocation to several hundred parcels or displacees.
