WVC 17 - 4 - 42
§17-4-42. Same -- Acquisition of property and property rights.
The state road commissioner may acquire private or public
property rights or any interests in lands for controlled-access
facilities and service roads, including existing and vested
rights of access, air, view and light, by grant, gift, devise,
purchase or condemnation in the same manner as the commissioner
is now or may hereafter be authorized by law to acquire such
property or property rights in connection with the highways of
the state road system. In connection with the acquisition of
such property or property rights for any controlled-access
facility or portion thereof, or service road in connection
therewith, the commissioner may, in his discretion, acquire an
entire lot, block, or tract of land, if by so doing, the
interests of the public will best be served even though said
entire lot, block, or tract is not immediately needed for the
right of way proper.
