New Bojangles restaurant slated to open by Memorial Day
SALISBURY — The Bojangles on East Innes Street should reopen by Memorial Day, and the developer will remove the median on Arlington Street and add a left-turn lane, a city official said.
Bojangles tore down the old restaurant and is building a new one that will be turned 90 degrees to face East Innes with a more efficient drive-through and parking lot.
The city of Salisbury and Bojangles have entered an agreement to restore Arlington Street to five lanes, City Planner Trey Cleaton said. City engineers asked Bojangles to make the changes while the company rebuilds the restaurant and moves the entrance farther back from Innes, Cleaton said.
Bojangles will pay to remove the median and add a dedicated left-turn lane for drivers turning onto East Innes Street. The city will reimburse Bojangles no more than $16,000.
“This will help with traffic flow,” Cleaton said. “It’s been hard to turn left.”
The N.C. Department of Transportation will update the traffic signals at the intersection.
