A busy interchange on Interstate 70 in Dayton may soon see two new truck stops at the same time.
Just a few months ago, land at Ohio 235 and Center Point 70 Blvd. in Huber Heights outside of Dayton, Ohio was approved to accommodate a fueling station, truck stop and repair shop. Now, a second developer has proposed a second truck stop and repair facility just a few hundred yards south. The second truck stop would be built on a three-acre property at Technology Boulevard and Artz Road.
The newly proposed truck stop would boast a 4,500 square foot building with 12 semi truck parking spaces, and a 843 square foot semi truck repair shop. The landowner “feels there is a need for support services for over-the-road truckers who have maximized their legal driving time and must rest,” reports Dayton Daily News.
While the facility may include restrooms and showers for drivers, the details have not been finalized.
The other proposed truck stop will include two buildings – one 6,720 square foot building with a convenience store and restaurant, and a second 6,642-square-foot building with a diesel truck repair facility.
“The comprehensive plan indicates that this area is both a gateway (into the city) and … a growth area where we want to see businesses grow, thrive and be developed,” said Interim City Planner Aaron Sorrell.
