The intersection of Starke County Roads 210 and 675 East at Bass Lake is now a four-way stop. The Starke County Commissioners approved that change in July. Starke County Highway Superintendent Rik Ritzler opted to wait until exterior renovations at Sporty’z were finished before putting the signage up.
The intersection sees quite a bit of traffic in the summer from seasonal residents and patrons at both Sporty’z and Bielava Summer Resort. Ritzler says signs warning of the traffic pattern change will remain at all four approaches through next spring to make sure motorists are aware. The pavement has also been marked with reflective paint warning of the new stop signs.
