Saint Petersburg, FL asked in Real Estate Law for Florida

Q: Isn't there a law in Florida that if a property provides public access for a road for 20 years it becomes permanent

Pinellas Co, Kenneth City, St. Petersburg. Access to 80th St N from 46th Ave. N. Owners on corner put up a privacy fence across 80th St N no longer allowing access to residences who must go through the neighborhood to get access to their homes. This is a named street that the city provides maintenance not a private street. It also now takes the emergency vehicles almost two minutes longer to get to the homes.
