The Hickory McDonald's is on track to open for business the week of October 15, but the exact date remains unclear.
This summer, franchisee Mike Lozinak said the new McDonald's would likely open in mid-October.
The parking lot of the business was being paved Wednesday, and a McDonald's franchise representative said the new business, located at 1502 Conowingo Road, would open some time next week.
The exact date is unclear based on last minute utility matters.
Construction of the eatery included an expansion of the roadway directly behind the McDonald's off Water Tower Way and across from Bynum Road.
