Lake County Engineer Department

The Lake County Engineer’s Department is essential and is doing all we can to contain the coronavirus pandemic and keep our staff and stakeholders safe. Therefore, we are cancelling or postponing in-person meetings that are not considered crucial at this time. We continue to be dedicated to keeping our roads, bridges, and intersections safe for your mandatory and emergency travels at this time.  I thank our staff and communities for their due diligence and the staff’s presence during this time.  Please keep yourselves safe.  

The Lake County Engineer’s Office is dedicated to improving the quality of life for Lake County citizens by providing safer roads, bridges, and intersections.

You are invited to review our website for up-to-date road information, review of ongoing projects, and other valuable information.  Please call, email, or visit us if what you are looking for is not on our website.

A huge shout out to for permitting the Lake County Engineer to use the amazing Vrooman Road pictures with our communities.  Your graciousness is appreciated!  


Dumping leaves and other yard waste in streams, creeks, ditches, and storm drains causes problems for you, your neighbors, and your local municipality.

Yard wastes also clog and block storm drains, streams, and ditches.  This increases flooding and stream bank and ditch erosion.  Fixing damage and removing these blockages comes at a cost to both homeowners and communities.
