What is the road right-of-way?
The right-of-way includes the public road and property adjoining the road where the municipality requires a right to have jurisdiction, access or consistency for items such as curb, sidewalk, hydrant, pole, valve or other utility related construction. In general, the right-of-way extends a minimum of ten feet from the edge of pavement of our public roads. The surface features of the right of way are generally maintained at the discretion of adjoining property owners in terms of grass cutting or brush removal.
