A national truck-stop chain could be coming to Hopkins County. It would be a Love's Travel Shop. The proposed 10 thousand square foot facility would go up near Hanson off the Pennyrile Parkway.
We're learning Love's Travel Stop officials are looking at a 10 acre parcel near the intersection of Eastlawn Road and Kentucky 260. They're evaluating the site, looking at zoning, checking on utilities, conducting a traffic study, and putting together a development plan. If Love's Travel Stop decides to move forward with the project a 10 thousand square foot building with gas pumps, a restaurant, and a convenience store could be built on the land.
Love's Travel Stop officials say it's too early to say if or when they will purchase the property.
