Does Fremont Township Highway Plow Your Roads
Our Highway Department needs your cooperation and is asking you not to park on the roads that they plow during a snow event. Please pass this information along to your neighbors.
Please Don't Crowd The Plow
This is a good video for new drivers to watch too! Every year we ask drivers to remember to stay back when approaching a snow plow. There are many reasons why this "Winter Driving Tip" is at the top of our list, but the most important is SAFETY. For your safety, and the safety of our snow plow drivers. When visibility is low, and roads are potentially slippery, it is crucial to SLOW DOWN and STAY BACK! Do you know what to expect when the plow goes into a turn lane? Click the photo to learn more.
View Road Conditions On Your Computer or Mobile Device
Did you know that you can look in on the road conditions from your computer or mobile device before you hit the roads? You have access to the PASSAGE cameras which means you can look at real-time snapshots from major intersections. Go to LakeCountyPASSAGE.com , turn on camera images in “Layer Options” at the top right, find intersections along your route, and check road conditions in each direction.
