Hillman Township officials made the road to one family's new home disappear. Disagreements over who is responsible for maintenance created a feud. Officials wiped the street off the map.

A MARTINEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martinez. If your new neighbors don't like you, they may tell you to hit the road. But officials of Hillman Township in Minnesota made the road to one family's new home disappear entirely. Disagreement over who's responsible for maintenance created a highway to a heck of a feud, and Hillman officials wiped the street off the map. It's just the latest in a years-long fight. Maybe someday the two parties can take the high road - if that still exists anymore.

It's MORNING EDITION.
