In North Dakota, the road authority has an easement to use the edge of the landowner's property. When a road is closed, abandoned or not wanted, the road authority can let the landowner take over control of the easement to use for their needs. A road authority is either a Township Board, a County Highway Department, or the State Highway Department. The turnover usually has to be initiated by a petition from the landowner after the road authority has closed or stopped maintenance of the road.
