  523.282.  Blanket easements void, when — definitions. — 1.  Any blanket easement created after December 31, 2006, shall be void as against public policy and wholly unenforceable.  For the purposes of this section, the term "blanket easement" shall mean an easement in real property acquired by condemnation or negotiations in lieu of the exercise thereof where the instrument or order of condemnation, by its terms, allows the easement holder to locate its facilities at an undefined location on, over, under, or across the burdened property.

  2.  Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection 1 of this section to the contrary, the term "blanket easement" shall not apply to any instrument containing language that upon completion of the initial structure explicitly fixes the burden, scope of use, and footprint within the express terms of the instrument and also contains an express statement that the location of the burden shall be fixed to the degree occupied by the initial structure upon completion of such structure.  Nothing in this section shall prohibit the expansion or upgrade of the initially completed structure provided that the purpose or purposes and footprint of said expansion or upgrade were explicitly described in the original terms of the instrument.
