The Bergland Dock boating access site, on Lake Gogebic in Ontonagon County, will close temporarily beginning Sept. 16 to complete paving and other site improvements.

Paving will require closure of the site for an anticipated six weeks.

Investment in the project totals $260,000, covering paving and site lighting improvements made in 2018. The paving project was slated to begin in September 2018 but was postponed because of contracting issues..

The project is funded through the State of Michigan Waterways Improvement Fund, a restricted fund derived from boating registration fees and Michigan marine fuel tax for the construction, operation and maintenance of public recreational boating facilities.
