Right-of-Way. Wallingford’s Highway Department personnel reminds property owners Vermont Statute, Title 19, Section 702 defines the highway right-of-way as follows: “the right-of-way for each highway and trail shall be three rods wide unless otherwise properly recorded.”  A rod is a unit of measure equaling 16.5 feet, so the assumed minimum width of the right-of-way is 49.5 feet. This total minimum width extends evenly (24.75 feet) on both sides of the highway centerline. Please bear this in mind before building a fence, rock wall or anything with the right-of-way otherwise you may be asked to move it if it interferes with highway maintenance or projects.
