The US 395 North Spokane Freeway project may still be a few years away from completion. But it is finally within sight of being a reality, and many properties, that stand in the way of the freeway are now being moved or removed. Most of those right now are homes near where 395 will one day meet I-90, but up near Hillyard, one such property move is effecting a McDonald's.
The existing McDonald's in the 3400 block of N. Market St. will be demolished, likely in early March, and re-built on a new site directly next door. The new McDonald's will be built, now directly at the corner of Market & Bridgeport, the main entrance driveway will also shift to Bridgeport with some of the parking lot siting on the site of the former McDonald's.
The lot will be long, as opposed to wide, which blocked the Freeway construction project. The new McDonald's will also cause one additional smaller building to be demolished, a former auto repair shop which is at the corner now.
The new McDonald's should open for business in June, and will be different then the former McDonald's . The new location will be the newer, more modern, standard McDonald's look and décor. It also will include a drive through with two ordering lanes, that is also becoming the standard for the Chicago area based fast food chain. And, unlike their new location next to campus at Gonzaga this McDonald's will also still have a dine in area. In all the new McDonald's building will have 4300 square feet of space.
No news if the new McDonald's will create any new jobs. We will also keep an eye on the rest of their neighborhood as some other businesses are also in the way of the project, so we do expect more news soon.
