Is This A Town Road?

Published by Minnesota Association of Townships


This program teaches the process of identifying whether a township road was created, how much right of way was created, and whether a town road was vacated or otherwise lost. This is a fundamental issue for townships considering maintenance operations on their roads, and in responding to inquiries from the public about whether the township is responsible for a road.
