(A) Each front yard (setback) shall be measured at right angles or radially from the nearest street right-of-way line (front property line) where the right-of-way of any existing street is 50 feet in width in the case of a local or minor type street, or 60 feet in width in the case of any designated county collector or major street. Where the respective right-of-way widths of the above type streets are less, or where there may be doubt as to the width of the right-of-way, the minimum front yard depth or setback line shall be determined by adding the distances specified below to the minimum front yard requirement, and measuring from the centerline of the type of road involved:
(1) All local or minor streets, add 25 feet; and
(2) County collector or major streets, add 30 feet.
(B) In any district where a lot abuts a state highway, the minimum front yard otherwise required for any building where less than 100 feet shall be increased by an amount specified by the State Highway Administration, as would reflect and allow for future official widening and right-of-way lines, if applicable.
