Roads & Service

THIS IS A NEWS RELEASE FROM THE LAKE COUNTY ENGINEER EFFECTIVE TODAY, TUESDAY, AUGUST 9, 2022:

Effective immediately, a section of Paine Road just north of Carter Road and approximately 0.2 miles south of Taylor Road in Leroy Twp. is closed to all traffic.

The Lake County Engineer’s Office has been monitoring this section of roadway on the hill for the past few months.  Soil borings have been taken and a consulting engineering firm has been retained to inspect the retaining wall, evaluate the structural integrity of the wall, analyze the results and propose repairs for a potential failure.  The results of their study and recommendations are still pending.

Unfortunately, the excessive amount of rainfall over the last ten hours and field observations has caused concern that the southbound lane of the road is unstable thus necessitating the road closure and additional inspections.

The road will remain closed until results of the engineering analysis is available.  Additional information will be released at that time.

We apologize for the short notice and the inconvenience but this office believes that the emergency closure is necessary to protect public welfare and safety.  Drivers should not try to drive around and/or move the barricades to gain access.

POSTED DETOUR – Carter Road to Vrooman Road to South Ridge Road (SR 84) to Adams Road to River Road to Blair Road.
