Rendering McDonald's remodel at Dale Boulevard at Gideon Drive.

The McDonald's on Dale Boulevard near Interstate 95 is planning to redevelop  to add a second drive-thru lane.

The Prince William County Planning Commission unanimously recommended approval of a special-use permit for the project during its meeting Wednesday.

The permit is required to add another drive-thru lane and ordering station.

It’s unclear when construction might begin. The permit still requires approval by the Board of Supervisors.

What a great story. Your editor must really respect your work to assign such a important topic.

Wake Up & Smell The Coffee!

Journalism, as it once was, is all but dead. The Star & National Enquirer were once the butt of journalism jokes. Today, the main stream media’s journalists & reporters are the butt of jokes. And they have certainly earned it! Newsworthiness doesn’t appear to matter and the 5W’s & H seem irrelevant. And with the abundant use of anonymous sources”, why not just ad lib the other “facts” too, right?

It’s heartbreaking and dangerous. Particularly when you consider their role in our existence. Commendable are those who choose to stay true to journalistic integrity.
