My question involves real estate located in the State of: West Virginia
We bought a house almost 2 years ago and it is a gravel road that goes past our driveway into a DNR place. We were told that the road was a county maintained road but to date no one has did anything to maintain it. We contacted our DOH who told us it was the land developers responsibility to maintain it and the land developer told us that it is the DOH responsibility to fix it but no one is doing anything about it.It is a gravel road and is in very poor shape . It goes up to a wildlife reserve that is owned by the DNR and we have also contacted them and they accept no responsibility for maintaining it as well. Seeing as how no one is claiming responsibility to maintain it can I close the road and put up a gate seeing that I am going to be the one who maintains it?? How can the DOH just quit doing upkeep on it ??
