What is Right-of- Way?

The county has a 30 foot prescriptive easement to maintain the roads, (15 ft. from center-line on each side) In some areas we can have more if it was an old state road, a plat dedication, or if we purchased the Right-of-Way during one of our road projects.  It is best to contact the Department of Public Works if you are not sure.
