CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — A Texas Roadhouse restaurant could be coming to Franklin County, Pa., if land-development plans submitted to the Chambersburg Borough Council are approved.
The council is expected to vote on the plans Oct. 24.
On Monday, council members asked how the restaurant would affect the intersection of Gateway Avenue and Walker Road, specifically curbs and sidewalks in the area.
“This is our problem, unfortunately, not Texas Roadhouse’s problem,” Borough Manager Jeffrey Stonehill said.
Gateway Ventures Inc. is proposing a nearly 7,000-square-foot restaurant on 1.75 acres in front of the Gateway Shopping Center, the site of several other eateries, including Moe’s Southwest Grill and Fuddruckers.
The property is zoned commercial highway and adjacent to a planned Candlewood Suites hotel, according to Phil Wolgemuth, borough planning and zoning administrator.
The borough council recently approved the transfer of a liquor license to Texas Roadhouse.
