Neb. Rev. Stat. 39-301 provides in part that "any person who injures or obstructs a public road by felling a tree or trees in, upon, or across the same, by placing or leaving any other obstruction thereon, by encroaching upon the same with any fence, by plowing or digging any ditch or other opening thereon, by diverting water onto or across such road so as to saturate, wash, or impair the maintenance, construction, or passability of such public road ... shall, upon conviction thereof, be guilty of a Class V misdemeanor, in case of placing any obstruction on the road, be charged an additional sum of not exceeding three dollars per day for every day he or she allows such obstruction to remain after being ordered to remove the same by the road overseer or other officer in charge of road work in the area where such obstruction is located.

"Any officer in charge of road work, after having given reasonable notice to the owners of the obstruction or person so obstructing or plowing or digging ditches upon such road, may remove any such fence or other obstruction, fill up any such ditch or excavation, and recover the necessary cost of such removal from such owner or other person obstructing such road."

Landowners are liable for damages and/or accidents related to any obstructions they caused to be placed in the county road right-of-way areas. Cooperation from landowners and tenants to keep the public roadways safe and clear of hazards is greatly appreciated.
