Earlier this week, the Chillicothe McDonald's began undergoing a complete building remodel. The inside and outside of the fast food restaurant on the south end of town will be completely updated, and a second drive-thru lane will be added to the current layout, much like at the Cameron locale. About one week ago, they took out their patio area, the contents of which were donated to the Chillicothe Parks Department. Currently, the lobby and drive-thru areas of the restaurant are open to customers, despite outside construction. Come the end of Feb. 2013, however, the site will close for construction, and will then be open for a couple of weeks as a drive-thru-only establishment before they hold their grand re-opening. The remodel is expected to be completed by mid-March 2013. McDonald's associates apologize for the inconvenience associated with the remodel, and ask customers to keep an eye out for special food rates during the construction process.
