We’ve been asked several times about what’s going in at Tramway between that palatial new gas station and the Hardee’s at the intersection of U.S. 1 and Tramway Road, and if the signs on site are any indication, we’re getting another Dollar General (that will make six locations in Lee County) and a second Dunkin’ Donuts.

If the rendering on that second sign is accurate, the new construction will have space for several other retailers as well.

Bill Keller, the general contractor for Rhetson Companies, told The Rant on Thursday that he expected the job to be done around December.

Rhetson Companies is linked with Par 5 Development out of West End in Moore County. Par 5 is the company which purchased a portion of the Kendale Shopping Center in August of 2019, and while no plans have been announced for Kendale, some renovation work has apparently begun in recent months.
