A public meeting on the Bus. 51 remodel in Whiting is scheduled for Monday night.

The 5 p.m. meeting will discuss the contractor’s schedule and traffic impacts during a brief presentation, followed by an informal open-house format. The project is expected to kick off at Hickory St. and Minnesota Ave. on July 11.

Crews will widen both northbound and southbound lanes, add bicycle lanes and sidewalks on both sides of the road, and install LED lighting on a new center median. Construction is scheduled for completion in November 2019.

The first phase of the remodel, between Green and Springville drives in Plover, was completed in November of 2016. Phase two rebuilds the roadway between Elm St. and Minnesota Ave. in Whiting, with the final two phases completing reconstruction between Springville Dr. and Elm Street.

Whiting Municipal Center is locatedĀ at 3600 Water St.
