What construction is planned for N. Church St. and Graham-Hopedale Rd. in Burlington?

The Bojangles restaurant chain is apparently about to break ground on yet another new location in Burlington.

The Charlotte-based company – which already has restaurants on Maple Avenue and Huffman Mill Road, not to mention others in Mebane and Graham – recently obtained the city’s permission to set up a new, 3,136-square-foot eatery in the southeastern corner of South Church Street and St. Mark’s Church Road in Burlington.

Coverage of earlier story about the Bojangle’s being built at the corner of South Church Street and St. Mark’s Church Road on the other side of Burlington:

Since then, city officials have signed off on another Bojangles in Burlington – this one at North Church Street’s intersection with Graham-Hopedale Road.

According to information that the chain has submitted to Burlington’s inspections department, this latest eatery would occupy a parcel at 1909 North Church Street that was, at one time, home to an Eckerd pharmacy.

The plans for this eatery, which would include a drive-thru window, received a final nod from a staff-level technical review committee on June 3. Later that month, the city’s inspections department issued a construction permit for the new restaurant.

The most recent development in this project’s saga has been the approval of a demolition permit for the now-vacant drug store. On July 16, the inspections department formally gave W.H. Bass the all-clear to raze this structure. Since then, a mechanical excavator has appeared on site in preparation for the building’s demolition.
