DRIVEWAYS, ROAD CLOSURES AND BANNERS

BOARD OF COUNTY ROAD COMMISSIONERS

FOREWORD

Thanks for your interest in our policies.  This booklet has been developed to help you know in advance the rules and regulations for work involving the county public road right-of-way and to provide a sample copy of an application form.

The policies cited have been adopted by the Board of County Road Commissioners of Ogemaw County (Board) to promote safety and the general public welfare.

The Board continues to recognize that the right of access to county roads is incidental to ownership of abutting land.  Our goal is to grant land owners access for their needs consistent with the Board’s right and responsibility to insist on the location and design of driveways that will provide freedom of traffic movement and safety of the highway users.

The driveway policy outlines the procedure for obtaining permit approval to construct, reconstruct or modify a driveway.

Official policies sometimes contain unfamiliar terminology, so feel free to call us at
(989) 345-0234, or fax us at (989) 345-2337.  We will be happy to answer any questions and look forward to working with you.

The Ogemaw County Road Commission Board and Staff
