Question about parking on bridges on state highways & roads
Lots of crazies out there who think they should have control over who uses public lands and waters adjacent to their property.
Those folks are deserving of the same level of respect that they give others.
Btw. I do pay taxes on the land under the public sidewalk and the tree terrace in front of my house. I suppose someone might not legally picnic there but I doubt I could stop them from traveling there.
the easiest place to look for right of way widths would be the county GIS site. read 82.31 it discusses the creation of township roads and the assumptions made by the statute. I would caution local parking ordinances may vary from place to place and time to time.
I excluded township roads because back in the day townships did not have very accurate surveying for roads. Most roads were put in the best locations. Never mentioned cities lots not sure why you are on that?
State, Federal and County roads all have right of ways. Which are legal to walk to the water unless no parking signs/laws are enforced.
Now you are just arguing to argue.
BTW I own multiple properties.
Just the minimum offset of 35ft with a 12ft lane, 3ft shoulder and a 3ft gravel shoulder would still leave you 17ft of State, Federal or county right of way before your land.
I am attaching a common bridge area over a river (thornapple) and you can see the right of way lines that I highlighted 3 at 75ft from centerline and one at 60ft from centerline. Anything between those lines is road right of way that the only enforcement is from state or county officials.
You "PK" nails are actually for station marks on the road, you can drive them through asphalt and last longer than spray paint, on concrete they usually stamp the fresh pour as they survey roads that need to be reconstructed well in advance. You "PK" nails are at 100ft intervals. They are there to mark the precise spot of a station mark not a lot line in the middle of a road.
BTW PK is just the name brand of the nail. I have been on 100's of these and bid on 1000's of them in the last 32 years and have not seen one yet where a property owners lot line end up on a corner of a bridge.
But yes carry on and call everyone else uneducated idiots, you're looking good.
Edit: here is just half the bridge as it will not let me attach anything scanned.
