If that right of way is the only access to the land, your neighbor is not legally entitled to block it.

First, I would send your neighbor written notice that he is blocking the right of way and request that he cease his actions. If your neighbor does not respond to the letter, then your only option would be to civilly sue your neighbor to have the court order him to desist from blocking the right of way.
