MERRITT, B.C. — Truckers motoring through B.C. will soon have a new place to pull over for some grub and rest, as a new 25,000-sq.-ft. truck stop is slated to open in Merritt next summer.
The truck stop will be built on airport development property and will be fuelled by Husky-Mohawk Ltd.
Community Futures Development Centre (CFDC) has been active in getting the truck stop approved and have been working with investors since May to ensure the project gets the green light. CFDC economic development officer, Deanne Parise, says blueprints will be unveiled within a couple of weeks.
“There should be a ground breaking in early spring,” Parise tells local media. “We’ve been working with different companies to complement the truck stop.”
Indications are the truck stop will feature showers, laundry facilities and a coffee shop.
