While scaffolding is visible on the outside of the new Holiday Inn Express on Eldridge Road, each of the four floors are taking shape inside. Much of the work being done on Monday was related to drywall. Antonio Forias uses a drywall banjo to apply drywall tape on the ceiling of a third floor room. When completed, the motel will have 82 rooms, a meeting room that will accommodate over 50 people and an indoor swimming pool. Photo by Alan Smith.
