Please Don't Park On The Road During Snow Events
Because of the amount of snow expected, the Fremont Highway Department needs your cooperation and is asking you not to park on the roads that they plow. It is also dangerous for our residents and employees when you walk in the road during a snow event. The plow truck may not see you! If your mailbox is damaged by a Fremont Township snowplow, please call 847 223-2848. Thank you for your help. Please pass this along to your neighbors.
Know Before You Go
Did you know you can view camera images, and condition of roads at intersections through the the Lake County Division of Transportation Passage Page? Check  Lake County PASSAGE  for real-time, local traffic information. Through PASSAGE you can also sign up for   email traffic alerts ,   twitter alerts , and  smartphone apps .
In the Layer Options menu, choose "Cameras", then click on the camera image to see what is happening at the intersection you want to see. This can help you plan your route home. Throughout snow season you can also find information on  LCDOT's Facebook Page .
