STERLING – Oppold Marina will be off limits for 2 days next week because of a road closure, Sterling Township said in a news release.

Stouffer Road south of Woodlawn Road, east of Sterling, will be closed from 9 a.m. Monday to 5 p.m. Tuesday for work on the railroad crossing on Stouffer.

There will be no access to the marina during the closure, and no signs advising motorists will be posted.

A longer project starting Thursday north of town will affect travel on Fulfs Road, between Freeport and Polo roads, the township said.

That 1-mile section of road is being resurfaced, and will be under construction until Aug. 11, weather permitting. Flaggers will be on hand.

Call Dana Stutzke, the township road commissioner, at 815-625-2785 for more information.
