Love's coming to Williston North Dakota

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.


Love’s Travel Stops opens new Tennessee location

Love’s Travel Stops -truck stops, has opened a new facility in Lenoir City, TN. The center is located at Exit 364 off Interstate 40.

The new location has a fully stocked travel stop and includes 95 truck parking spots, McDonald’s and Subway restaurants. There is also a Love’s Truck Tire Care center, all open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Bulk DEF is available at the pump on all diesel lanes along with RFID cardless fueling, CAT scales, five shows and other amenities.

Drivers will receive double “My Love Rewards” loyalty points on purchases at the new location through July 31.


As progress continues toward construction of a Love's Travel Stop and Country Store near Interstate 24's exit 158, a man who lives next to the site is worried.

The Jasper Board of Mayor and Aldermen voted unanimously last week to annex the area between U.S. Highway 41 and the exit on Jan. 1 and to build a sewer line to it for the truck stop.

The annexation will encompass Carl Taylor's 31 acres, which border the Love's site.

"I guess I'm going to be affected more by being right next door to that property, and I've got some concerns about it," Taylor said.

He said he wanted to be assured there would be adequate police protection in the annexed area as well as some kind of barrier to separate the Love's facility from his property line.

Jasper Mayor Billy Simpson said the annexed area will have city police protection.

City Attorney Mark Raines said the Love's construction plan includes an "evergreen barrier" to help screen the site and lessen noise from neighboring properties.

"We're going to have some noise issues," Taylor said. "I can tell you that right now."

A more solid barrier should be built to separate the properties, he said, since one part of the adjoining property is a "straight walk" to his house.

"I'm not saying everybody is a criminal, but you have that small percentage [and] that gives them an opportunity to just cross over," Taylor said. "If I had some kind of barrier to keep an honest man honest, it would make [my family] feel better."

The developers "want to be good neighbors," Raines said, and a more permanent barrier may be something the city can discuss with Love's officials.


Love's officials could not be reached for comment.

Taylor also said he is worried whether his property will be taxed as residential or commercial after the annexation.

Officials said his property will continue to be zoned and taxed as residential unless it is used for a commercial business.

Alderman Steve Looney said the truck stop will benefit the city, Marion County and the whole area.

"We're not looking to sit here on our hunkers and not do anything," he said. "I want to see things improve for Jasper. This is not going to do anything but help Jasper."

Taylor said he doesn't want anyone to think he's against progress.

"People just have the feeling of being forced to do something that we don't really want to do," he said.

Taylor said he would like to "go over a few issues" with Love's officials and has asked city leaders to set up a meeting.

"I don't think [setting up that meeting] will be a problem, because they've been more than willing to listen," Simpson said.

Love's plans to open the truck stop in July 2013, officials said.
