The Pittsburgh Right of Way Group (formerly PIT ROW Group, now the IRWA Chapter 88, Three Rivers Chapter) is a network of land professionals, for those in the tri-state area working in Oil & Gas, Electric & Utilities, Telecommunications and Transportation. This includes, but not limited to, Acquisition, Construction, Engineering, Environmental, GIS Mapping, Inspection, Legal, Permitting, Production, Safety, Survey & Title. We believe having a greater understanding of each component involved in a project will deliver a better product. Come share your knowledge and experience, network with others across the different specialist and enjoy a good lunch.

Our History:  The group was established in August of 2017, our goal is to have IRWA presence in the Pittsburgh region. Membership in the IRWA isn't required to participate in the group, but it is encouraged (for more information on the IRWA visit
