Does my property line extend to the road pavement?

Your front property line is established by survey and may be marked with ‘monuments’. These are small concrete pillars placed at the corners of a parcel. The corridor for Town roads is 50 feet. The corridors for county and state roads vary. An approximation of the front property line is half the corridor width from the center of the road pavement. Pavements do not always adhere to the exact center of a corridor so this is not an accurate method of determining a front property line.
