Restaurant owner worried about McCord underpass project affecting business

SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The owner of Hot Head Burritos in Springfield Township says he is worried he will lose customers because of the McCord underpass construction project.

"There's kids that work here, that they'll lose hours. There are people that we supply and do business with, there is a ripple effect of that economics that it's untold what will happen. We don't know yet," said owner Chuck Salmon.

His regulars that work nearby are also concerned.

"We have a lot of employees that are coming across the tracks for lunch and a lot of the restaurants that are here across the street, so it is going to be difficult when the project does get started," said Bob Krist, who works nearby.

"There will be an impact on McCord Road," said Theresa Pollick with the Ohio Department of Transportation. "Obviously when we are constructing an underpass, that is going to involve the closure of this road."

That's why a public meeting was held to answer questions and tell people when closures are expected to happen.

"We are looking at just lane restrictions on McCord Road while we are doing construction for this year, but next year we'll get into the timing of the closures, which it looks like it is going to be some time for McCord Road early next year in the spring," said Pollick.
