New Travel Center Announced For Highway 85/16 Junction
The developer has announced that a new travel center will be built at the junction of highways 85 & 16 on the Eastern edge of Newcastle. The 14 acre development will include a modern 5,000 sq. ft. travel center with all the amenities the traveling public demands. The travel center will also include a fast-food drive through which is un-named at this time but will be an area favorite.
The site now includes an RV Park which will remain at present with future plans for expansion and branding with a national brand.
The site will include a gas service canopied island which can handle 10 vehicles at one time, and a canopied fuel island that can service four trucks at one time, all this on a 7 acre portion of the development which gives surplus room for entering and exiting along with overnight parking.
The County has been granted permission to construct an entrance off of highway 16 to compliment the one in place on highway 85. Dirt work on the project will begin in the next 30 days with a projected spring 2020 opening.
D A Peterson & Associates, LLC will be in charge of construction on the project, and has developed numerous properties in the North and South Dakota and recently constructed the Newcastle Lodge and Convention Center.
