As part of the agreement with the village, Kwik Trip has promised to pay $1.3 million for infrastructure improvements near the new store site. Those improvements include the changes at the railroad crossing, which had an estimated cost of about $300,000. Other infrastructure improvements along Highway 167 to be part of the project include closing a median on Highway 167 so that no left turns can be made from the right-in only access point.
The proposed convenience store is projected to be 8,847 square feet with attached dumpster enclosure, gas fueling canopy and storage shed. It will have gasoline pumps and island for diesel fuel for larger trucks.
Kwik Trip normally averages around 30-40 employees at each store.
Watch for signs of road closure/construction in the future.
