After spending millions of dollars on flood protection, this message from Oakport Township: Stay off the dikes. For the past couple of years, Oakport has been quickly building dikes to protect against floodwaters. After last weekend's snow, some sleds and ATV's have been spotted driving on top of the dikes, which were recently seeded.

Jeff Schaumann Oakport Town Board: “With the dikes newly seeded and completed we are asking residents to keep motorized vehicles and ATV's off the dikes to protect them and honor property owner rights.”

While most of the flood protection is done in Oakport, a road needs raising and some remaining dike work is left once funding is secured.
