I'm taking a class in real property law. We have many exercises where we read a survey map and write a legal description in metes and bounds. Many of the maps use the "centerline" of a road but some say things like "the southeasterly right-of-way line of StreetName." What exactly does that mean, "right-of-way line"?
I checked Black's Dictionary and Black's Dictionary. It talked about: Right to pass, easement, strip of land (the land itself). If it's a strip of land, typically how wide is the strip?
Are these rights of way recorded somewhere systematically? If so, do surveyors have access to the full list?
