The government can terminate an easement by invoking the doctrine of eminent domain.

Upon the expiry of time allowed for an easement, it comes to an end.
When the easement holder discontinues with the use of the easement followed by an expression of intent to abandon the same.
When the same person becomes the owner of both the adjoining plots of land, that is the parcel enjoying the benefit of the easement of pathway as well as the plot bearing the burden of the easement, the easement comes to an end as there is no longer any necessity.
