Spring Flooding Road Update

Posted on Monday May 25, 2020 at 02:36PM

Recent poor weather and seasonal freeze/thaw patterns have damaged the structure of a significant number of County roads. Due to the large amount of roads currently damaged and requiring maintenance, Lamont County is in the process of analyzing what is needed to create a repair/re-habilitation strategy.

The county understands that the public may be inconvenienced during this time. However, with the kind cooperation of ratepayers, residents and stakeholders, a successful and sustainable maintenance program can be created to fit within current budget restraints. The maintenance and improvement of Lamont County’s infrastructure is at the forefront of priorities and focus.

  • TWP 550 between RR 202 & HWY 831

It is essential that everyone obey all road closure signs and barriers for their safety. Lamont County will be enforcing LOCAL TRAFFIC ONLY on CLOSED roads.

Caution is required on all Lamont County roads at this time. Please drive within the speed limit and be aware of road conditions. Anyone found not complying with road closures can be charged $243 for failure to obey a traffic control device. Anyone found responsible for damaging signs or barricades can be charged with criminal mischief and will be required to appear in court and pay restitution.
