A major remodeling project at the Burger King in Oakdale's Bergen Plaza is complete and the dining room at the restaurant has reopened, its project manager said.
Work on the restaurant began two weeks ago and included gutting the inside and installing new contemporary fixtures, ceiling and floors. It also included remodeling bathrooms to meet standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
"It was built in the early 1980s and has not been touched since," said Corey Schmitt of Krech, O'Brien, Mueller and Associates, the company doing the work.
The parking lot was also given a redo, and the exterior of the building at 7051 N. 10th St. was given a facelift and relandscaped.
The drive-through has remained open during construction.
Krech, O'Brien, Mueller and Associates also did a similar update to the Burger King in White Bear Lake earlier this summer.Women's boutique to open
