It only took McDonald’s seven months to build and open their new Seabrook location at the corner of State Highway 146 and E. Meyer/Repsdorph Rd. McDonald’s has been a part of the Seabrook community for the past 40 years and the City of Seabrook is beyond excited that they chose to stay in Seabrook after being displaced by the SH 146 Expansion Project.
“We are happy we were able to stay in Seabrook,” said franchise owner Robert Flores during today’s ribbon cutting. “We want to keep Seabrook strong and we hope to have another good 40 years in Seabrook.”
Approximately 76 Seabrook businesses have been impacted by the SH 146 Expansion Project and McDonald’s is one of several businesses that relocated within Seabrook. In May, Mario’s Flying Pizza reopened their doors at their new location on NASA Parkway and both CVS and Autozone relocated to the Repsdorph Circle Town Center last year. Other impacted businesses, such as Life Storage, are in the process of modifying their properties to comply with the new right-of-way.
While the SH 146 Expansion Project will take several years to complete, Mayor Thom Kolupski is very optimistic stating “We are seeing great interest in new commercial businesses, retailers, and restaurateurs who are eager to establish in Seabrook.” Within the next year, the SH 146 northbound frontage road will be near completion in Seabrook. Several pad sites along this highway frontage are prime and ready for development.
