What’s the construction work going on behind Mebane’s ABC store and beside King Tire of Mebane?
Work is underway on a new ABC store, to be built behind the current store, at 7713 US 70, on the Orange County side of Mebane.
Mebane’s city council unanimously approved a request last May from the Orange County ABC Board to rezone the location of its existing ABC store in order to build a new store.
The current store will be razed when the new store is completed.
Here’s an architectural rendering of the proposed new store, as presented to the city council last year:
