The former BP gas station near Drake Road on West Main, is scheduled for removal by October 1, 2020 The developer, Treystar will be updating a couple of other stores and replacing this with new retail space!
We've been watching this proposed project for over 18 months and many have wondered if it's really going to happen.
If you travel West main street you have seen the traffic delays and back-ups created by Popeye's. Trust me, the owners of Chick-fil-A are seeing this too and are counting the days.
Heavy equipment arrived on the site early this month and construction has begun.
Updates to follow as we see progress.
The owners wanted a new exit at the extreme north end of the property to have a left turn lane onto Drake Road. Other store owners agree as that traffic would be rushing past the fronts of their stores to exit on Piccadilly to exit back to West Main Street.
Our latest information indicates that the construction will begin in July or August
The former Kentucky Fried Chicken (before that McDonalds) building at 2026 West Main is undergoing some renovations. It's going to be called Five Lakes coffee shop. It looks like most demo has been completed and re-construction is taking place - although too slow for me. lol
