A new truck stop, a Love's Travel Stop, is slated to begin construction this spring north of Williston with a projected opening date in late fall.

According to a press release, the stop will "cover nearly 10,000 square feet with a national fast food restaurant and a truck tire care center for professional truck drivers."

There will be eight gas islands and eight diesel fuel dispensers as well as 100 truck parking spaces and a convenience store. The new Love's will be located on U.S. Highway 85 just north of Williams County Road 6 between the Target Logistics man camp and Fox Run RV park. It will be near where the new truck bypass reenters the existing US-85 and will be "adjacent to the new Western Area Water Depot, a 400-unit electrified truck parking area."

"We've got a presence up in North Dakota and what I've been hearing is the folks there have been really great to work with. It's exciting," said Jenny Love Meyer, vice president of communications.

Love's is a family-owned business headquartered in Oklahoma with more than 285 locations in 39 states, according to the press release.

At the official opening there will be a ribbon-cutting and Love's will present a donation to a local non-profit, Meyer said.
