Buffer sides of polygon only

I have a string of polygons that are 60m wide and 250m long. They are joined in a line, making a right-of-way. The ROW is 60m wide in total, but needs to be 100m wide.

When I buffer each feature, I get overlap where links in the ROW join.

Is there anyway to only extend the buffer on the long edge? I also need to maintain the breaks between segments and all attributes associated.

I've attached a screengrab. The green is my ROW, the red is the buffer.
