Editors note:
Today in “What’s the Story?” we answer a question from a reader who wants to know about the dirt piles near the intersection of Highways 41 and 151.

Crews are working on backfilling the area on the corner of Highways 41 and 151 for future development.

City of Fond du Lac Community Development Director Wayne Rollin said clay was previously excavated from the site for construction purposes and it has been an ongoing process to backfill the area.

Normally, areas are backfilled with dirt from other nearby construction areas, Rollin said. Because of that, it can be a slow process. Rollin said he does not know how long it will take to finish backfilling the area.

Rollin said there are no current development plans for the location that he is aware of, but it is a “prime location” for future real estate.

Because it is such a visible area, Rollin said he frequently gets questions about it.
