New Bojangles restaurant in Cabell County creates a traffic nightmare


Some major traffic jams on one of Cabell County‘s busiest roads have police asking drivers, to avoid drumsticks. 13 news found this is a different kind of game of chicken, with biscuits, and much busier than expected traffic involved.

A large orange Traffic Alert sign on busy Route 60 actually names the restaurant. The newly opened Bojangles Chicken and Biscuits has become a heavily targeted destination

The Wednesday lunch line to just get in Bojangles parking lot, extended way down traffic choked Route 60. It gets even busier in the afternoon and evenings.

“Just be patient, eventually you’ll get though. But don’t pull out of your lane,”Restaurant manager Mary Spears told 13 News.

Police say the traffic here helped cause a serious accident Tuesday night. Huntington Police Chief Joe Ciccarelli message was that you can not obstruct a lane of Route 60 for a drumstick.

Ciccarelli said if the parking lot and drive thru are full, drive on. The owner of the parking lot next door to Bojangles told 13 News that after hours Tuesday, his lot was full of cars

He said this morning; he found the lot full of garbage and chicken bones. Chief Ciccarelli said there will be no special traffic control at Bojangles, just the normal patrol shift.
