Later this month, Eden Township's supervisors are expected to officially abandon the municipality's section of Miller Rd.
The road, which runs north from Springville Rd., goes into Strasburg Township just short of its intersection with White Oak Rd., hasn't been used in years, roadmaster Mark Rudy said last week.
"About 80 percent of it goes through the Zook farm and their entrance is off White Oak Rd. They don't use it [Miller Rd.]," Rudy said.
The township has not made an effort to improve the road.
"I have been here more than 13 years and the only thing we did was put some stone down in 2009 just to make it half presentable," Rudy said. "Now the property owner has been parking vehicles on it. He can't do that if it's still a municipal right of way, but it will be OK once we turn it over [to the landowners]."
The properties along the road are accessed either from Eden Township's Springville Rd. or White Oak Rd. in neighboring Strasburg Township.
"Vacating ownership of the road benefits the township, because we will no longer be responsible for it, and it benefits the landowners because it gives them control of the right of way," Rudy said.
Supervisors are scheduled to vote on the proposal at the April 8 public meeting. The ordinance to vacate the road will become official five days after it is adopted.
