Press Release from Lake County Engineer's Office - January 11, 2017
Lake County-Vrooman Road Snow Plow Policy
Due to the increased demand for snow removal on County maintained roads, our policy and procedures for the treatment of the Vrooman Road Bridge between I-90 and SR 84 in Perry/Leroy Township has been reevaluated this year. The one lane bridge will be maintained until such time that a storm with a snow fall that exceeds 4 inches occurs. During intense storms with snow fall exceeding 4 inches, the road will be closed between SR 84 and Seeley Road. Drivers are asked to please abide by the posted signs and detour around the area as plows will not be clearing this section of roadway until the storm subsides.
Our goal with this policy is to continue to provide the citizens of Lake County with a safe driving environment and allow us to stretch our reserves for the entire winter season. It will require county drivers to cooperate during these events. Please exercise caution and be free of distractions while driving on our roadways during snow and ice conditions.
