English term or phrase: Right of way (RoW)
This is a very specialized term used in road , highway construction and planning

The sentence reads > The reconstruction of five-lane has to be proposed within the existing Right of Way (RoW) as far as possible. However, those stretch wherever RoW is inadequate to accommodate the proposed/required improvement like geometric improvement, small re-alignment etc.

My question is how can I translate in FRENCH "Right of way" in this context?

le droit de passage ? Please confirm

Thanks
