POST ROAD CORRIDOR - CONSTRUCTION UPDATE:  May 19, 2016

Crews continue with storm sewer installation and working on water main and sanitary sewer adjustments  and grading in the southbound lane in the coming days/weeks. They have begun installing steel casing pipe and storm sewer under the railroad tracks. Railroad crews have been reconstructing the railroad crossing this week, south of Chestnut Drive. It's expected that grading and new asphalt paving at the new railroad crossing will happen soon. 

Crews have shifted one-lane of traffic in each direction on Business 51 (Post Road) to the northbound (eastside) lanes for the next several months with Business 51 and will now remain open (as railroad crossing replacement has now taken place) until traffic is shifted over to southbound (westside) lanes once they are completed. 

The ongoing adjustments in the southbound lanes will continue with grading those lanes as storm sewer and water mains are positioned in the continuing preparation of the permanent roadway, bike lanes and sidewalks in the southbound right of way.  Short-term closures for storm sewer and utility work may occur at west intersections at Gilman Drive on May 18-20, RIver Drive on May 19 and 23-27, and Plover Springs Drive on May 20.

The biggest change in traffic is limitation of left-hand turns along the construction corridor, except at major intersections; necessitating turning early or driving past targeted businesses and working your way (locally) to access such businesses.  Be patient, plan ahead and a minor re-route will help get you to where you're going SAFELY!  The overall project is scheduled for completion in November, 2016. 

Welcome to PABA: Home of the Plover Area Business Association! 

The Plover Area Business Association was established in 1979 to give Plover businesses a stronger voice in the Stevens Point Chamber of Commerce. Today PABA continues to be the voice of the business community. The purpose of the association is to foster and advance business and community interests throughout the Greater Plover Area.

PABA works with the Village of Plover to develop a stronger community, retain existing businesses, and draw new businesses to the area. PABA draws on its alliances with the Portage County Business Council, the Stevens Point Area CVB, and Portage County Planning & Zoning.  PABA events, webinars and group activities provide both educational and social opportunities within the PABA membership. These events are great networking tools to help businesses develop new prospects while learning about their fellow Plover area business partners. 

PABA prides itself in giving back to the community and members through grant and scholarship programs as well as working with Operation Bootstrap with our Brat Fry and Christmas Presents from the Heart campaigns.

Membership investment levels in PABA are open to any individual, organization, or firm which has commercial interests in the Greater Plover Area.
