Whenever viewers are appointed to vacate any public road, street, or highway in this
Commonwealth, and the vacation of the same takes no land from the owner or owners
of land abutting thereon, if, in the opinion of the viewers so appointed the vacation
of said road, street, or highway damages the property of the abutting owner, they
may award damages to such owner or owners as though land had been actually taken,
and such damages shall be paid as is now provided by existing laws where land is actually
taken for the opening, vacating, and laying out of roads, streets, and highways.
