New construction on Merchants

Recommended Posts

Anybody know what they are going to build at the comer of Coach Bobby Dodd and Merchants? See a construction trailer sitting out there now that they cleared the lot of the pine trees.

Don’t quote me on this because I can’t remember where I heard it.

I heard it’s going to be a new Burger King.

I heard that it was BK from a county employee seems like a year ago but had figured that fell through, maybe its back on. I wouldn't mind except I'm not sure of the impact it will have on the traffic right there. It is already crazy with the number of people jumping too early in the turning lanes and driving on the wrong side of the road to turn on to Old Harris Rd. I have almost been hit there head on more than a few times by folks not obeying the lines on the road.

That traffic flow in the entire area was obsolete 20 years ago. How that has escaped reconfiguration is beyond reason.

Just guessing, but I'd almost bet it comes down to the value of one, maybe two parcels that would be required to demo.

Looks like they are just about done. I'd guess BK will be open by July 1.
