Some residents do not understand that the public right of way extends into what they consider to be their private property. The public right of way is usually a strip of land (sometimes around cul-de-sacs and at intersections, the right of way also has curves and/or tapers associated with it), acquired for transportation purposes; more specifically land in which the County owns the fee, or has an easement devoted to or required for use a public street. The public right of right of way usually varies from about 50 feet to 60 feet for typical residential streets, and up to more than 100 feet for principle arterial streets. In addition to public right of way, the County occasionally has utility easements for such public improvements as water, sewer, and stormwater facilities. To determine what private and public easements, if any, your property has, you should contact your title company.
