Lamont County considers road rehabilitation and construction to be an important part of our growth. We attempt to build as many miles in a year that the weather conditions will allow. We build approximately 6 miles of road and 4 shoulder pulls per year. The 5- year plan is updated yearly to meet the priorities and budget requirements.Please be patient and slow down through County construction zones.
Compensation for ConstructionSee Policy #5103.
ApproachesApproaches are located within the road right of way and are under the direction, control and management of Lamont County. Therefore the County retains full discretion over the installation and/or removal of approaches. All new approaches must meet the approved standards. If the property owner wishes to build an approach or have Lamont County build an approach, fill out the approach form and submit to Public Works for approval. Costs are associated with the building of the second approach per parcel.
For additional information view Policy #5106.
Oil companies must make a formal request in writing outlining the placement of the driveway.
Currently roads are re-graveled on an approximate 5-year rotation basis with 225 – 250 miles re-graveled each year. Roads are also graveled on an as needed basis. The County owns its own trucks and completes the entire road graveling program in house.
