ROSCOE (WREX) — Drivers in the Roscoe area have a new spot to fill up the tank.
A new Speedway gas station opened on December 14th on the southwest corner of Rockton and Willowbrook Roads. A Love’s Travel Stop is at the southeast corner of the same intersection.
Roscoe Village Administrator, Scott Sanders, says the total development cost is in the ballpark of $6 million. Sanders says he expects to see more businesses come to that area, and soon.
Sanders told 13 News that construction of a new Thorton’s gas station is expected to start this spring at the northeast corner of the Rockton and Willowbrook Road intersection.
Gas prices at the Speedway were $1.75 as of Friday morning.
