Road Rights-of-Way vs. Easements in Wyoming
I came across a situation in Wyoming where some county roads were established by resolution. The intended rights-of-way were surveyed and plats were prepared and placed on file for public record. All of the recorded documents use the term “right-of-way” as well as “easement”. The question I have is this, when a county road is established by this method in Wyoming, is fee title of the roadbed passed to the county, or is the acquisition an easement right with the adjacent property owners retaining the underlying fee title? Thoughts?
