    WHEREAS, a certain portion of the state-owned highway known as US Route 5 located in the Town of Putney, County of Windham and State of Vermont, described more particularly below, is presently under the jurisdiction and control of the Agency of Transportation (VTrans); and

    WHEREAS, this certain portion of US Route 5 and land surrounding it as described below is located within the boundaries of a Limited Access Facility, as defined in 19 V.S.A Chapter 17; and

    WHEREAS, in 19 V.S.A §1702 a Limited Access Facility is defined as a highway or street over, from, or to which owners, or occupants of abutting land, or any other person have no right, or easement, or only a limited right, or easement, of access, light, air, or view by reason of the fact that their property abuts upon the limited access facility or for any other reason; and

    WHEREAS, an abutting landowner, Putney Landing Apartments, wishes to construct a drive for access, ingress and egress for its property to and from US Route 5 within this certain portion of US Route 5 that is currently within the afore-mentioned Limited Access Facility; and

    WHEREAS, VTrans has determined that this certain portion of US Route 5 as described below is no longer necessary for Limited Access Facility purposes; and

    WHEREAS, VTrans desires to change the boundaries of the Limited Access Facility right-of-way to reduce the Limited Access to allow the abutting landowner, Putney Landing Apartments, to build and have access to a drive in the normal US Route 5 right-of-way; and

    WHEREAS, the current Limited Access Facility right-of-way ends at stations 466+00 RT and 465+42 LT; and
