HUNTINGBURG — Construction documents for a McDonald's restaurant in Huntingburg were filed with the Indiana Department of Homeland Security in early 2018, and while the restaurant still isn't a reality, the company says it's still possible.

“The Huntingburg, Indiana area remains a viable option for a McDonald’s location," a McDonald's spokesperson told The Herald. "However, there are no definitive details or timelines to disclose at this time.”

The City of Huntingburg's planning director had told the Huntingburg Board of Public Works in May 2018 that the company had received a permit from the city for the $1.5 million project, which was proposed for property at the southwest corner of Sixth and Main street — or State Road 64 and U.S. 231 in the city — which is the former site of a Marathon gas station that was demolished years ago.

According to Dubois County GIS, Uebelhor Developments still owns the proposed site.

The board of public works was told at the time that McDonald's planned to build the restaurant in 2019 or 2020.
