LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - People on La Crosse's north side will have to go a little farther for a Big Mac, at least temporarily.
The McDonald's location on George Street closed its doors at 9 p.m. Monday. They're being forced to relocate due to their land being bought as part of the I-90 Exit 3 project.
The Golden Arches have been at their current location since 1972, but they aren't going far. A new location will be built just down the road from where they are now.
"For more than 45 years, we've been able to serve the northside community and it means a lot to us to be able to reinvest in this part of town and to continue to serve our regular customers and all of the families that we see every day," said McDonald's brand director Kristina Schoh.
McDonald's hopes to have the new location built in 100 days, however, they won't be able to open their doors until the road construction project is complete.
