Public meeting for Libal Street Improvement Project in Allouez
Meeting to focus on introducing the proposed project and listening to comments, concerns, or suggestions.
The Village of Allouez is conducting a public involvement meeting to discuss proposed improvements for the reconstruction of Libal Street between Wisconsin Highway (WIS) 172 and Kalb Avenue.
The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, September 22, 2021, from 5:30 P.M. to 7:30 P.M., in the Village Hall Board Room, 1900 Libal Street, Allouez. The objective of this meeting is to introduce the proposed project and listen to comments, concerns, or suggestions.
The proposed project will reconstruct Libal Street from WIS 172 to Allouez Avenue and replace the existing pavement from Allouez Avenue to Kalb Avenue. The preliminary design of the reconstruction section from WIS 172 to Allouez Avenue will investigate options for roadway widths, bike lanes, parking, and sidewalks. New storm sewer will be constructed in this section. New sidewalk is proposed between Greene Avenue and Allouez Avenue on the west side of Libal Street. The pavement replacement section from Allouez Avenue to Kalb Avenue will construct a new asphalt pavement while maintaining the existing curb and gutter and existing sidewalk. Existing curb and gutter and sidewalk in poor condition will be replaced as necessary. New sidewalk is proposed north of Beaupre Street to Kalb Avenue on the east side of Libal Street. The existing storm sewer will be reviewed and spot repairs completed as necessary. The project is anticipated to begin construction as early as 2024.
Adjacent property owners are encouraged to attend the meeting. Citizens who are deaf or hard of hearing and require an interpreter may request one by contacting Sean Gehin at least three working days prior to the meeting.
