Four months from the time that construction begins, MacEwen Petroleum Inc. expects to be opening the doors to the redevelopment taking place at the corner of County Roads 2 and 31 in Morrisburg.
Although not ready to release full details about what MacEwen has planned for the site, Allan MacEwen, company president, confirmed that the new location will include a gas bar, fast food outlet, convenience store, and touchless carwash.
Once the new property is ready, the existing MacEwen, location, which includes a McDonald’s Restaurant, will close. He said that the property will either be redeveloped or sold.
MacEwen would not discuss details regarding the McDonald’s.
Plans are to start construction this fall. “We won’t open the doors until the pavement is done,” said MacEwen, who expects the re-development to be complete in the new year.
“We are really looking forward to this better location,” said MacEwen. “It has good access, puts us closer to traffic from the 401 and will really improve the looks of that corner.”
“We love having a site in Morrisburg.”
