Hi Mike - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
There's generally no such thing as a free easement from the centerline of the road.......The state or county (depending on whether the road is a county or state road) would have a right of way from the centerline, but not a utility. Instead, the utility must obtain an easement either through a purchase or deed or eminent domain.
Thus, if the utility placed the lines on your property and outside of the easement area, then they should either have to move the lines OR pay you for placing the lines on your land.
