    SPRINGFIELD – The Springfield McDonald's restaurant will be torn down next week, company officials said Tuesday.

    The restaurant, at the corner of Route 106 and Route 11, will be open for business on Sunday, July 28, but close for about 90 days, said Howard Williams, maintenance and technical supervisor for Coughlin Inc., the Rutland-based owner of the restaurant.

    Williams said the restaurant's 60 employees would be placed in Coughlin's other 18 McDonald's restaurants in the region. The closest one is in Claremont, N.H.

    Company officials earlier this year had announced plans to demolish the 1970s-era restaurant and replace it with a more modern, energy efficient one with two drive-up windows.
