CLIFTON PARK -- The town Planning Board granted approval to Sonic Drive-In for a drive-thru lane for the restaurant it plans to build, eliminating the project's final hurdle.

The 3,700-square-foot restaurant will be built in Town Plaza, 800 Route 146, Suite 105. The plaza is owned by DCG Development,  a Clifton Park-based real estate company that owns a slew of properties in Saratoga County.

Sonic said it would open its third Capital Region location in Clifton Park in March.

The national fast-food chain will bring an estimated 75 jobs to the area and represents a $1 million investment from the company, according to a press release from Sonic.

Sonic's Latham location opened in July 2015, followed by a Troy Sonic in February 2017. The project first came before the board in 2016, and the building was originally supposed to house a Dunkin Donuts coffee shop, but the leases were never signed, leading to Sonic eventually committing to the space.

In May, Clifton Park Town Supervisor Phil Barrett lauded DCG for recruiting various companies, including Sonic, into town, diversifying the options in the Clifton Park's growing town center near Exit 9 on the Northway.
