New chain restaurant open in Dubuque

The Sonic restaurant at Plaza 20 in Dubuque officially opened this morning.

A previous announcement stated that the restaurant’s hours will be 6 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily, with plans of eventually being open 24 hours.

In a related move, the Plaza 20 east frontage road remains temporarily closed at the Devon Drive intersection.

Traffic that would have used the frontage road instead will be detoured around the buildings housing Starbucks, Subway and Ed Fett Accounting. Eastbound traffic on Dodge Street also can access Sonic by turning right onto the frontage road near Harbor Freight.
