Posted January 28, 2018 12:13:50 A new gas station on a busy corner of the intersection of U.S. Highway 290 and West Virginia Avenue in Washington County, W.
Va., will be a fixture of the community.
The new gas convenience store is the first of its kind in the state, and will offer an alternative to the convenience stores currently operating in Washington and Virginia counties.
The station will be built at the intersection between U.M.S.-Canyon Road and Highway 290, and be the second gas station built in Washington since the beginning of the new year.
According to the U.P.S., the new station will add an additional 1,600 jobs to the community, as well as expand its grocery offerings, and increase its parking availability.
The news was first reported by the Washington County News.
The company, known as Crossroads, has been working to bring a gas station to the area since at least 2013, when the company began planning to build one.
Since then, the project has gone through numerous phases, but in January, the company announced the completion of a major component of the project.
According of the company, the site was originally envisioned to house a grocery store, but was later moved to a vacant property to accommodate the project’s additional construction.
The property will include a 1,700-square-foot building, a 1.6-acre parking lot and a 1-acre green space.
The project is expected to be complete by the end of the year, and is expected at least another three years before it opens its doors to the public.
