NORMAL, Ill. -- The corner of College Avenue and Veterans Parkway in Normal will soon be even busier.

Tartan Realty is bringing Red Robin --a popular hamburger joint---to the southwest corner of this intersection. Construction has already begun and Normal City representatives say they are excited.

"That intersection is one of the busiest in Normal," said City Manager Mark Peterson. "So that parcel of land is particularly important. The use of a hotel there did not do as well. I think the restaurant is likely to be successful."

This is just one of about four other potential restaurants coming to that area. The Red Robin doors are expected to open for business November 1st.
