There are some big changes going on at the McDonald's restaurant on Lafayette Road in Portsmouth, New Hampshire!

The Lafayette Road (Route 1) location closed back in January to undergo some major renovations and to update the interior of the restaurant because that particular McDonald's opened back in the early 70's.

Larry Johnson, who is the brand ambassador for the Napoli Group said the Lafayette Road location needed a facelift.

The Napoli group owns several of the McDonald's locations around the area including, Newington, Hampton, Dover, Lee, Portsmouth, Greenland, Exeter and Kittery, Maine. The Hampton restaurant could possibly be the next on the list to receive an upgrade, while Kittery could see some renovations in the near future as well.

So, if you frequent the McDonald's on Lafayette Road in Portsmouth, you'll need to make other plans for the next several weeks! The projected re-opening is slated to be sometime later this month or May.

You may remember back in June of 2017, a pick-up truck crashed into the building causing some damage. Below are some photos of the work in progress. I bet it's going to be beautiful when all the work is complete.
