Construction on New McDonald's Restaurant in Yakima Underway

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Construction is underway on the new downtown Yakima McDonald's restaurant.

Wednesday night, the old Chinese Buffet restaurant at the corner of First Street and Yakima Avenue was demolished.

On Thursday, the cleanup at the new location began but residents we talked to aren't happy with where the McDonalds will be placed downtown.

"It's a downtown busy area," said Sara Anderson. "I don't know how it's going to work yet."

"Probably gonna cause a lot of traffic congestion," Quinton Norman said. "Other than that is might be a good idea."

"Two main streets, with the drive through, it's probably too congested," said Ricardo Espinosa.

McDonalds claims this new Yakima restaurant will be nicer than any other McDonalds in the Pacific Northwest.
