In addition to the paved portion of the roadway, the right-of-way (ROW) extends beyond the curb and sidewalk. The right-of-way provides access to pedestrians and motorists and provides areas for utilities such as gas, electric, water, communications and sewers.

All work performed within the right-of-way (ROW) of Township roads require a Road Occupancy Permit. Any work performed on a township road over, under or within the limits of a limited access state highway requires a state permit.
