A brand-new McDonalds is coming to Cottage Grove.

The current building will be demolished to make way for a new building.

McDonalds has not yet announced dates for demolition and reconstruction.

The building will be roughly the same size as the old one, and in the same location.

The new McDonalds will have double drive-thru lanes, as over 70 percent of their business is from drive-thru sales.

Though much the same from the outside, the feel inside will be different on the inside.

The new decor will feel more like a cafe-type restaurant than the current McDonalds.

There will also be a new PlayPlace that will concentrate more on electronic games, while also installing some of the more traditional play equipment.

The plans are expected to be before the planning commission Feb. 26 and the city council March 7.
