Aquarium Way reopens
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) — Aquarium Way, which was closed during the demolition of Cheeburger Cheeburger, reopened on Friday.
People who work in the area say they are glad traffic is back to normal.
The closed road and sidewalk didn’t affect business at Puckett’s across the street. Foster Yates, a manager at Puckett’s, says it actually helped business, because it brought spectators.
“It has kind of been a way for people to sit on the sidewalk and watch watch is going on. So it definitely has actually brought some people to our establishment. We’ve enjoyed taking those people in as well,” said Yates.
Yates says he appreciates crews worked hard to make sure the area wasn’t dusty.
“They’ve done some great work, really, maintaining the debris and the trash with waterhoses and keeping the debris out of the roads,” Yates said.
On March 29, part of Cheeburger Cheeburger collapsed. On April 19 the demolition of the entire building started.
