With the Planning Commission’s approval, Kwik Trip now seeks permission from the Oshkosh Common Council.
This week Kwik Trip received approval from the Oshkosh Plan Commission to proceed with plans to demolish an existing Lang Oil gas station on West Ninth Avenue in Oshkosh, Wis., and replace it with a new Kwik Trip that would include a 5,800-square-foot convenience store and a canopy that covers 11 pump islands, The Northwestern Online reported.
Next Kwik Trip needs to gain the Oshkosh Common Council’s approval before it can proceed with the purchase of the property. If all goes as planned, Kwik Trip aims to demolish the existing Lang Oil BP station this fall and begin construction of the new store in the spring.
The Kwik Trip site is expected to improve traffic flow and safety on Ninth Avenue because the plans call for the existing driveway to be replaced with a more controlled access point with one entry lane and two exit lanes. The store also would retain or enhance the landscaping along the site’s south and east sides while adding landscaping to the west side of the site.
