Last week Universal Studios announced that it was expanding the area around The Simpsons Ride at its Universal Orlando Resort in Florida into a full-on Springfield replica, and here's a video of construction at the theme park. The video shows that things are coming along swimmingly on the "Fast Food Boulevard" for Krusty Burger, Moe's Tavern, and Cletus' Chicken Shack.
The theme park is to open this Summer, and Universal even appears to be hiring for the expansion; the Orlando Informer found back in March that Universal had openings for greeters at a "new themed restaurant." As of today, there are gigs available as a bartender, line cook, and "waitperson" for what is presumably the same "new themed restaurant." Here's the contruction video:
