UNION, MO (KTVI)- The popular McDonald's in Union destroyed during the historic December flooding is set to be demolished today. But the good news is that a brand new restaurant is going to be built at the same location.

The business has been closed since the massive flooding from the Bourbeuse River hit in late December.

But today`s demolition starts a new chapter for the restaurant and it`s longtime owners Deb and Mike Klak. This restaurant had roughly five feet of water in it. There was major structural damage so instead of trying to repair it all, the Klak`s decided to rebuild altogether.

Their Mcdonald`s location opened in December of 1992. The Klak's have owned it the entire time.

The new restaurant is scheduled to open around August 1st.
