Washington State: we have deeded road easement that we have been using for over 50 years. a neighbor, whose property includes the easement recently partially blocked it by cementing a post "exactly" where he thinks his property line is, less the easement. our question is: wouldn't continuous use of the road for all these years constitute the "real" easement, regardless of the neighbor's interpretation of the property line? Thanks!

Not necessarily. The easement by prescription would have to be adjudicated by the Courts in order for it to be legal.
