Road Closed Barricades

Sheriff Richard J Behnke of the Cass County Sheriff's Office would like to remind those in our motor vehicle traveling public of the importance of obeying the traffic control signals and road closer barricades currently being used to control traffic in areas where the roads are flooded because of the issues with the high water table this week. The Cass County Sheriff's office has received a request from the Cass County Road Commission to remind those people traveling that the signs and barricades are a legal traffic control device and anyone caught disobeying those traffic control devices could be issued a civil infraction citation resulting in the fine of $115.00 . The Cass County 911 Dispatch Center has taken a number of calls over the last several days of vehicle being stranded or even stuck in the roadway where wash outs have occurred. For this reason the Cass County Road Commission and the Michigan Department of Transportation have attempted to located and warn motorist of water over the road issues and road closings with the use of temporary signage and barricades. Failure to obey those signs and barricades can create a dangerous situation for the traveling public and you are asked to not go around or disobey those traffic control devices.
