COLLINSVILLE – If you deserve a break today, or sometime this week, you’ll have to drive thru the construction site to satisfy any Big Mac cravings.
The McDonald’s in Collinsville, closed inside Monday for extensive renovations. Despite the work, drive-thru service should be open again quicker than it takes to order two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame-seed bun
“We’re doing exterior renovations to take off the old-style McDonald’s roof and give it the new exterior look,” the local manager said, “and then it’s getting an all-new lobby, interior decor, seating, new bathroom upgrades and things like that.”
The restaurant’s exterior walls, roof and kitchen will remain in place, but the work will touch much of the rest of the structure. All told, the project will cost “well over $1 million!,”
