I live in WA. state, Spokane County. for the past 35yrs. we have had unrestricted ingress and egress to our home. A new person moved in up the road and sent a notice he intends to place an access gate on each end of his property. These gates will cross the existing road easment. This would require 3 handicapped people to exit thier vehicle 4 times upon coming or going. In addition he intends to provide everyone that lives along the easment keys to locks he intends to install. This would be physically impossible in the winter and early spring when the road is muddy. My question is whether he has a right to gate an existing easment? If he does gate it does that not make him responsible for any person that may become injured from stopping to open or close such a gate? How are we to provide keys to lets say UPS, The Postal Service, The fuel delivery truck, friends and family? Can you tell me if it is legal to fence an easment? The verbage on the easment does not say you can't fence it, nor does it say you can. It does say the property is to be used for normal ingress and egress. thank you.
