Love’s truck stop coming to Herculaneum

(Herculaneum) It’s official, a Love’s truck stop is coming to Herculaneum.

During its regular monthly meeting on January 17th, the Herculaneum Board of Alderman voted 6-0 to approve the truck stop company’s request to construct and manage a 24 hour convince store and gas station.

The truck stop will be located on 28 acres west of I-55 and north of the roundabout at McNutt Street and Providence Way.

Herculaneum City Administrator Jim Kasten says Love’s was given the green light but under certain conditions.

Kasten goes over some of the other conditions.

Despite some of the negative feedback from neighboring residents surrounding the truck stop build site, Kasten says Love’s will bring great business to the city.

The January 17th Board of Alderman meeting was held at the Herculaneum High School Theater to accommodate a larger crowd in attendance. Love’s hopes to have the new truck stop built and operational by next fall.
