Truckers traveling on Interstate 90 near Conneaut, OH, could have a new
truck stop to stop at some time next year.
According to the Conneaut Star
Beacon, the city is working on approving a chunk of land at the
junction of I-90, State Route 7 and Underridge Road to build a truck stop. The
development still requires final city approval, as well as permission from the
Ohio Department of Transportation to build a frontage road to service the truck
If all goes as planned, construction could begin on the project by
year’s end, the Star Beacon reported.
Although the stop is expected to have truck and four-wheeler fueling
stations and a restaurant, further details on parking spots and other amenities
have not yet been decided, the Star Beacon reported.
Ohio ranks 38th overall in commercial vehicle parking
adequacy, according to a 2002 study by the Federal Highway Administration.
