BENTON TOWNSHIP — Barricades are up and tenants have been moved around inside The Orchards Mall.

Movement inside the Benton Township shopping center has picked up as planned renovations and construction are set to begin in April. The renovation work will address concrete movement and shrinkage cracks that run down the middle of the building.
