A vacant build on Plover Road was bulldozed in one afternoon to make room for a new location of Kwik Trip on Plover Road in the Village of Plover.
The new location earned approval from village leaders last November and construction on the $5 million project is expected this spring.
According to Village Administrator Dan Mahoney, the new store will encompass an entire block surrounded by Plover Road and Washington and Madison avenues.
“They (Kwik Trip) basically bought the entire block and bought the south side of the next block also, but have no plans for that at this time,” Mahoney said. The new project is one of several slated to begin in 2015, and Mahoney said it will likely spur additional growth on the village’s south side.
“One of the reasons we like the concept of the south side of the Plover Road being developed is because it will help redevelop the south side of the street, because of the traffic generated by Kwik Trip,” he said. “We’re kind of excited about that.”
Kwik Trip is also planning on a new location in south Stevens Point next to the former Copps grocery store on Church Street. That project is also slated to begin construction in the spring.
The Plover Kwik Trip is located on the south side of Plover Rd. about two blocks from the intersection of Bus. 51.
