|Abstract/Description:||"This manual describes the road laws and discusses issues and practices related to road activities. It is updated periodically to reflect legislative and other changes. It was prepared following 1979 and 1981 revisions to the Oregon laws that apply to road work by counties. Among other things, these revisions give greater recognition to the general authority of Oregon counties to manage their own affairs. Four of the topics covered address right-of-way matters: obtaining road right-of-way (establishment); clarifying old road boundaries (legalization); discarding unneeded right-of-way (vacation); and accommodating a landlocked property (way of necessity). Road control topics include jurisdictional classification of roads; regulating use of right-of-way; controlling hazards from adjacent properties; and traffic control management. Procedures for conducting work on roads are addressed by discussion of contracting, force account work, and provisions for design and specifications. More general topics include discussion of broad county authority, planning, road finance, and use of road districts. Intergovernmental relations and cooperative programs, including those with the state and federal departments of transportation, are also addressed"--Abstract|
