A variety of revised traffic patterns related to the Vrooman Road bridge replacement project went into effect Aug. 6 in Perry Township.
The township received a notice from the Ohio Department of Transportation announcing the following changes:
Route 84 at Lane Road will be restricted to one lane by a temporary traffic signal. Traffic will be maintained one direction at a time.
River Road at Route 84 will be closed permanently. All motorists seeking to use River Road will be directed to the new Adams Road.
Lane Road at Shepard Road will be closed to southbound traffic for three months. The southbound detour will be Shepard Road to Route 84. After the second month, Lane Road will be closed in both directions for an additional month. When Lane Road is reopened, there will be a permanent traffic light at Vrooman Road, Lane Road and Route 84.

Excavation work is the leading cause of damage to natural gas lines and other underground utility facilities. Ohio law requires excavators, contractors and property owners, to contact the state’s one-call system OHIO811 by dialing 8-1-1, at least two working days before digging. This is a FREE service. OHIO811 will notify utilities to mark line locations so that you can avoid costly damage to underground utility lines.
KNOW WHAT’S BELOW……Call before you dig……..811.
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.
