We’ve put together a collection of our most frequently asked questions. You can see the most common here or view them all by following the link below.
How do I get my road paved?
Primary Roads- selected on a pavement inventory rating which takes into consideration the physical condition of the road, the average daily traffic and the physical ride ability of the pavement.
Local Roads- selected by the townships based on the concern of the public and the amount of money that they have available to cost share with the Road Commission.
How do I initiate a road project?
Residents may petition the Road Commission for an improvement by special assessment, with 51% of the property owners signing the petition. Otherwise, Lapeer County Road Commission projects must be requested by the townships. Contact your local township.

Your truck knocked down my mailbox. When are you going to fix it?
Mailboxes are sometimes knocked down by road commission trucks when plowing snow. The Road Commission’s policy is to replace mailboxes that have actually been hit by the snowplow; however, if the mailbox or wooden post was broken off from the force of the snow coming off the plow blade, we do not replace it. Replacement consists of a metal mailbox and a metal signpost. Please file a service request with our office and we will check into the problem.
What do I do if I have a dead deer or small animal in my ditch or on the road?
The Road Commission will move the animal off the traveled portion of the roadway; however, we are not responsible for picking up animals and disposing of them.
