The White Castle located at 213-17 Northern Blvd. in Bayside began undergoing renovations on April 3, according to a spokesperson for the fast food joint.

The entirety of the work is expected to take about 13 weeks, the spokesperson said, adding that the location will remain open for customers throughout most of the construction period.

According to the White Castle spokesperson, the construction work currently being done on the dining room is expected to take approximately five weeks. While it is being worked on, the drive-thru will be the only part of the restaurant to remain open.

Once the work on the dining room is completed, construction on the drive-thru will then commence. This work is expected to take approximately four weeks. During that period, the drive-thru will be closed but the interior of the restaurant, including the dining room, will be open for customers.

While the restaurant will remain open in some capacity throughout the first two stages of construction, it will be shut down entirely over the last four weeks of renovations as the finishing touches are added, the spokesperson said.

Assuming all the work gets done as planned throughout each stage of the project, the restaurant is expected to reopen on July 3.

The hope and expectation is that the result of this renovation work will help create a more convenient and enjoyable experience for customers, the spokesperson said.
