Summary note
A study was made of the legal aspects of the expressway. The study examined the existing law to suggest means for improving the legal framework. The common law was reviewed relating to the protection of and restrictions on the rights of the abutting owner prior to the construction of modern expressways. Statutory law in existence at the time was analyzed. 45 states have enacted specific legislation to deal with the special problems of the expressway since 1937. However, all states have not followed the same pattern. The substantive elements isolated from the existing expressway laws are summarized briefly and 20 aspects discussed in detail.
