Middletown McDonald's groundbreaking planned for July

By Ryan Cornell

MIDDLETOWN -- Town residents may have to wait a month longer before digging into their McDinners.

The Middletown McDonald's, planned to be built on Reliance Road near Interstate 81, could break ground as late as July, according to Middletown Zoning Administrator Fred Wharton.

He said the company has a land disturbance permit from Frederick County, and is currently in a two-week process of interviewing contractors.

They can dig dirt in July, but they don't have the building permits yet, he said.

Originally, some plans called for groundbreaking of the fast food site in June. Wharton said the delay is partly due to the construction of another McDonald's franchise in Woodstock, which opened last week.

An earlier article stated that plans from developers expect the project to take between 90 and 120 days to complete.

The site shares property with the town's former Super 8 motel.

Wharton said rooms in the motel are being rehabbed and will become an Econo Lodge.

"We're ready," he said. "We've been ready."
