DURAND —Soon, residents and people traveling through Durand will be able to stop enjoy a Taco Bell. Construction is currently underway for the restaurant located at 8831 E. Lansing Road.
When finished it will be approximately 2,500 square feet, and feature a drive-thru and an outdoor patio, according to Bob Grabowski of Great Lakes Taco. The project represents a $2-million investment, he said.
The construction is expected to be completed in an 80-day time frame and be up and running by September.
Durand had several requirements before it would grant Grabowski the necessary permits. He agreed to pay for an updated traffic study, to install lighting in front of the restaurant that is consistent with lighting at other new properties in the city, to plant and maintain decorative vegetation, and install a black chain-link fence behind the property.
