What is a right-of-way?

A right-of-way is property typically reserved for transportation uses. The property is usually deeded or dedicated, in our case to the County, and implies an ownership right. Rights-of-way in Park County are most often, but not always, sixty feet (60’) in width. However, rights-of-way may vary from twenty feet (20’) to one-hundred and twenty feet (120’) or more.
