Lake County Engineer, James R. Gills, announced today that the Ruhlin Company, the contractor for the Vrooman Road/Bridge Project, will begin installing storm sewers in the Vrooman Road and Seeley Road area on Monday, May 11, 2015. Barricades will be installed approximately one mile north of I-90 restricting traffic from accessing the Grand River and Indian Point Park. All access to Indian Point Park will be from the east end of Seeley Road. Drivers are advised to follow the posted detour via Vrooman Road (south), Carter Road and Paine Road. Access will be maintained to the residents on Vrooman Road. The road is expected to re-open on June 15, 2015. At that time, full access between SR 84 and I-90 will be provided via a temporary low level bridge. The one lane temporary bridge will be controlled by traffic signals. The temporary bridge will be located in the same location and at the same elevation as the existing bridge thus still making it subject to flooding. It is a requirement of the project plans that the temporary bridge remain in place and be useable by the public until the permanent high level bridge is complete and open to the public at the end of 2016.
