ROCKINGHAM — The whirring of the cement mixer truck and the attention-getting beeps of a backhoe in motion can’t be missed if you’re in the area of Discovery Place KIDS in downtown Rockingham this morning.

Work continues by the crew from Carpenter Construction, of Oakboro, and its subcontractors on the new multipurpose building in the 200 block of East Washington Street across from the nonprofit children’s museum.

The building is to be one-part lunchroom for children visiting Discovery Place KIDS and one part deli, which was first reported June 24 right here on PeeDeePost.com that the deli is to be a replica of The Villager. Deli owner Koley Keel said he hopes to bring to Rockingham what he’s offered in Pinehurst for the past 13 years.

This morning, one lane of East Washington Street is blocked to allow the cement mixer access to the site. The disruption takes out the southside lane for approximately half a block, marked by orange traffic cones.

    I think Discovery Place KIDS has been one of the best things to happen in this county for years, and I welcome this new development. Economic expansion is always good news.
