Title 19 : Highways


(Cite as: 19 V.S.A. § 1705)
  • § 1705. Acquisition of property

    The Agency or the town may acquire private or public property for limited access facilities and service roads, including rights of access, air, view, and light, by gift, devise, purchase, or condemnation in the same manner as it may acquire property for other highways within its jurisdiction. It shall take title in fee simple when practical. In connection with the acquisition of property for any limited access facility or portion of a facility, or service road in connection with a facility, the Agency or town may acquire an entire lot, block, or tract of land if, by so doing, the interests of the public will be best served, even though the entire lot, block, or tract is not immediately needed for the right-of-way. (Added 1985, No. 269 (Adj. Sess.), § 1; amended 1989, No. 246 (Adj. Sess.), § 16.)
