Riverside Drive Wendy's to remain open a little longer

The Wendy’s restaurant at 2740 Riverside Drive will remain open until April 30.

The property on which the restaurant sits was purchased by the state Department of Transportation to make way for a massive road project on Riverside Drive scheduled to begin this summer.

Employees at the restaurant were previously told March 31 would be the last day of business. Shawn Holloway, a Wendy’s regional manager, said they asked the DOT for an extension to operate through April and the DOT agreed.
