What is a right of way?

A right of way is a type of easement or agreement that grants a utility the right to use, access or transit a piece of property. An easement is typically granted by property owners to a utility for the purpose of constructing and maintaining water lines, sewer lines and or power lines. Before a utility line is built, the City of High Point acquires easements from property owners along the selected route.
