PUBLIC NOTICE:
Farming in Road Right-of-Ways
Transit Township Board Members have noted an increased use of township right-of-way (ROW) for agricultural purposes. Roadside mowing in the ROW is permitted for the purpose of weed control or making hay, but tillage or crop production is not permitted (M.S.160.2715). Tillage or crop production in the ROW can affect road structure, and create maintenance problems.
Township ROW includes driving lanes, shoulders, road ditches, and sight corners at intersections. Township road ROW typically extends 33 feet from either side of the center of the road. Utility poles and pedestals often serve as good indicators of ROW limits; however, it is the landowner responsibility to know the ROW limits. The Township Board has no desire or intention to measuring every ROW line, and appreciate the general good farming practices of our agricultural producers.
When tillage or crop production are identified, the township will notice landowner to reestablish the ROW where it has been encroached upon.
Please feel free to contact any Transit Township Supervisor if you have further questions or concerns.
