Chris, Can you give us an update on the Brandywine overpass construction? All I seem to be able find are overviews of the entire project with no updates on work done so far.

Burlington is moving over to Sports Authority. The current Burlington space will be cut up and leased in smaller sections.

Is the Safeway in Bryan's Rd closing in May

Chris Shasho said...

Have not heard anything but it wouldn’t make sense spending money on remodeling the center if Safeway had not renewed their lease. We will look into it.
