Vacation of roads approved

Three abandoned roadways were vacated by the Hancock County commissioners at their Thursday meeting.
Fernwood Drive in the Beechwood Second Addition, Marion Township, was vacated at the request of the township trustees. Under state law, the township loses all rights to a road, highway, street or alley which has not been used for 21 years or more. Abutting landowners can then ask for a vacation of the property.
Janice Way and Roberta Drive, in Eagle Township, were also vacated Thursday.
Janice Way is located off Township 77, and Roberta Drive is on the south side of Township 80. Both roads were proposed for further development in 1976, which did not occur. The property will go to neighboring landowners.
