Candle Wyck Lane has a new name.

Thursday morning, the name “PGW Drive” replaced the road name, paving the way for the business that will bring 260 jobs to the Yadkin Valley.

Pittsburgh Glass Works is slated to open for business in 2013. But the community will see activity down PGW Drive this year, as renovations on the building begin.

Between now and the end of the year, the building will undergo a great deal of structural work, said Leslie Schledner, Elkin’s economic development director.

“This is going to be a good year,” said Mayor Lestine Hutchens. “We are going to start seeing more PGW progress.”
