You will soon be able to walk through the village of Egg Harbor on a newly reconstructed Church Street. The Church St. project is due to a one million dollar grant from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, given to the village in the spring of 2020. The plan for the main thoroughfare is to add parking on both sides of the street, sidewalks, street lighting, and bike lanes. Village administrator, Megan Sawyer, says the reconstruction will encourage visitors to spend more time in the heart of the village.
During the July village board meeting, the trustees voted towards an expedited construction schedule. The project is to begin after their annual Pumpkin Patch Festival on October 9th and is predicted to be completed in the summer of 2022. Along with the Church St. project, there is also another project in the works for the village. The section of Highway 42 that runs through Egg Harbor is set for its own construction project sometime in 2023. If you wish to learn more about the Highway 42 construction project, the village of Egg Harbor will be hosting two public information events for August 2nd at 6:00 pm, and August 3rd at 9:00 am at the Donald & Carol Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor.
