What is the width of the county road right of way through or along my property?
The average throughout the county is 50 feet, or 25 feet on either side of the centerline of the roadway. Some deeded rights of way are much wider, some are less. In any case, please call before beginning any improvements along a county road. If you are planning on making or upgrading an approach to a county road, a permit is required before work begins. Boundary County Road and Bridge is finding it increasingly important to keep ditches clean and to remove small trees and brush before they become large stumps that hinder our maintenance efforts. For this reason, the County must maintain right of way beyond the apparent ditch lines. In all cases, every effort is made to contact property owners prior to the removal of large trees and before any work is done that would significantly impact that property.
