Calverton is one step closer to a new Dunkin’ Donuts.
The Riverhead Town Planning Board on Thursday approved a site plan application to convert an existing auto repair shop into a Dunkin’ Donuts where there is also an existing gas station and accessory convenience store near the intersection of Routes 25 and 25A.
A gas station and convenience shop will remain at the site, 4670 Middle Country Rd., just East of Parker Road and Grumman Memorial Park.
The plan calls for a 16-seat Dunkin’ Donuts where Tom’s County Automotive has operated for close to 30 years.
The developer of the project completed a similar renovation of a gas station on West Main Street in Riverhead near Riverhead Dodge, and has proposed to do likewise at a gas station on Route 58 at Osborne Avenue.
