4-Way Stop Signs at Lakewood Falls

Due to requests by Lakewood Falls Elemetary School and a recent traffice study, we will be installing 4-way stop signs at the intersection of S Budler Rd and W Lakeland Trl.  The installation will take place on Friday, November3rd, 2017.  Stop lines will be added sometime during the week of November 6th.  The current crosswalk and stop line will be touched up as well.  "Stop ahead signs" will be located near the intersections of Budler and Lakeridge, and Budler and Miller.

Then email the Hwy Dept at Guilty parties and/or their guardians will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, including payment of cleanup expenses.

Mowing & Trash Pickup

All road easements are mowed and cleared of trash.  This is an ongoing project through November.


Please note: Not all roads within the Township are under the jurisdiction of the Plainfield Township Highway Department.  This makes it confusing for some residents who are trying to get information and service.  If you have questions, please call 815-436-6090.  Your questions will be handled, or you will be directed to the proper State, County, local City or Village agency that is responsible.
