He said the site developers are currently working with the Illinois Department of Transportation on the entrances to the restaurant.

“The developer is still working diligently to get the Plum St. entrance open, it’s right-turn-in, right-turn-out,” he said. “There will be no entrance off 159. There will be barricades placed on the extension of Lavelle [Drive] and Robinson [Lane] that will allow people to come in off 159.”

He added that four new signs with the Chick-fil-A logo will be labeled with street names and arrows pointing to their corresponding entrances.

The new signs, as part of a Temporary Traffic and Signage Plan for the Orchard Town Center Development, were unanimously approved by the Glen Carbon Village Board at their meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2023.
