Jul. 22—The gates are up and the dozers are digging at the site of the future Olive Garden restaurant at 649 Turner St. in Auburn. Demolition of the former Ruby Tuesday restaurant was completed in early April and foundation work is underway.

Darden Restaurants, the parent company of Olive Garden, plans to build a 6,600-square-foot restaurant with an as-of-yet undetermined opening date in early 2023. The chain has locations in Augusta, South Portland and Bangor.
