Policy relative to granting and maintaining road approaches to state highway system.

(1) Approaches granted by right of way negotiation shall include in the instrument a provision that the approach shall be maintained by the grantee outside the shoulder line of the highway. This shall obtain irrespective of whether the state constructs the approach or not.
(2) Approaches granted by permit shall continue to be maintained outside the highway shoulder line by the holder of the permit.
(3) Existing structures, which have been granted under permit but which may be reconstructed by the state with the reconstruction of the highway, shall be maintained by the property owner and provision for such maintenance shall be set forth in the new permit or right of way instrument providing for the approach reconstruction. This is applicable to approaches which have developed but which are not covered by permit or right of way negotiation.
(4) Existing approaches outside the shoulder of the highway which were constructed by the state under a provision of a right of way transaction without mention of maintenance and which have previously been maintained by the state shall hereafter be maintained by the abutting property owner.
(5) Approaches to limited access highways shall be to frontage roads where provided and only to the main roadway where this is specifically intended under the plan showing access for the particular section within which the approach is located.
