McDonald's is on track to serve its first burgers in Angels Camp by the end of October.
"We are moving along swimmingly. Everything seems to be going according to plan," said Mike Maynard, who manages all the fast-food chain's construction projects from Woodland to Shasta Lake.
Maynard estimates the Angels restaurant will open its doors just before or during the last weekend in October.
The new McDonald's is in front of Frog Jump Plaza, at Highways 4 and 49.
So far, the site's concrete slab has been poured and sewer lines and underground grease traps are in place.
The construction crew is now putting up walls and framing. Work on curbs and gutters will start soon.
City Planning Director David Hanham agrees that the building is on target.
The city's building inspector will do intermittent inspections for things like framing and sheet metal, but all that is left on the planning side is the final inspection.
"And then we're good to go," Hanham said.
