Construction changes the face of Versailles corner

Construction crews moved in last week and quickly changed the look at the intersection of US 421 and US 50 in Versailles. Across from McDonald's on the north side of US 50, three houses were demolished, along with a concrete block building on the corner. Trees were taken out and by Monday morning the area was nearly completely leveled. Semi tractor trailers were taking the debris to make way for the new CVS Pharmacy that will be constructed on the site. CVS is presently located in the plaza where the Super Valu and Alco stores are on US 421 south of the intersection.
