LAKE COUNTY – VROOMAN ROAD CLOSURE
Vrooman Road between a point just north of the Mason’s Landing Park entrance and State Route 84 will be permanently closed effective Monday, March 26, 2018. Access to Mason’s Landing will be maintained over the Vrooman Road bridge. All through traffic should follow the posted detour of I-90 to SR 44 to SR 84.
The closure is necessary because of safety concerns with the retaining wall on the west side of Vrooman Road south of SR 84, which are being addressed by the Lake County Engineer’s Office.
Homeowners should call the Ohio Utilities Protection Service (OUPS) as the first step when starting a project that requires digging. It is important for safety but is also state law. The OUPS is a nonprofit organization that links consumers with their utilities to identify the location of underground pipes and wires. Call 800-362-3764 at least 48 hours but no more than 10 days before starting a digging project. The OUPS is available to schedule 24 hours a day, excluding weekends and holidays.
Mail-Box Policy Resolution (effective 12/29/08)
Leroy Township will follow the Lake County Engineer’s mailbox replacement policy. No “Rubbermaid” style mail boxes will be replaced. A value of up to $35.00 will be the maximum replacement cost. Leroy Township will only replace a mail box that has been damaged by a direct hit with the vehicle or snow plow. A mail box which has been damaged by thrown or pushed snow does not warrant replacement. The Township will replace or repair a mailbox damaged by DIRECT contact with the snow plow vehicle or plow blade with a standard 4 x 4 wooden treated post and mailbox as approved by the US Postal Service.
