    Shenandoah Plaza to reopen

    For you hands who run through Ohio on I-70 the Shenandoah truck stop is going to be reopening. It's been closed for a few years looking for a buyer.

    New people who are taking it over are local to the Cambridge, Ohio area. When the article ran in the newspaper on Jan. 6th they said truck repair operations were to begin in 2-3 weeks with the rest of the operation (hotel, restaurant, fuel desk, gas station) to be phased in by mid-April. It's also supposed to get new certified scales.

    I sure hope it does reopen. It will be nice to stop somewhere other than the Loves or Pilot, or have to wait til you get to Wheeling for a sit down restaurant, when gooing east.

    And mom and pop operations are superior by far when it comes to the food selection and pricing. I will definitely be a customer.

    Not sure on the mom and pop restaurant

    I'm not sure on the mom and pop on the restaurant, it might be connected with a chain.

    This is a direct quote from the newspaper's website with the story about it reopening:

    Myers said FLRR Inc. plans to operate the restaurant for the time being, and they have hired an experienced restaurant manager from Pennsylvania to oversee the food service portion of the business.

    FLRR would like to find a restaurant franchise to take over the operation.

    The motel will operate as an "America's Best Value" approved site.

    That place really used to be a hole. Bad food, filthy dirty, and hookers and he/shes in the parking lot.

    Home Truckstops

    I always admired the period architecture of the Shenandoah (built into hillside).The resturant almost projects out.Sitting in there almost made one feel as if they were on a voyage.Then take consideration of the historic fatal crash of the airship (Blimp) Shenandoah.This place has great character.I can rember as a kid feeding the quarters (25 cents per axle!) to the axle scale,on the hilltop.4Drivers.Also remember them complaining about the axle price skyrocketing from a dime per axle to a quarter.Im looking foward to the reopening.

    A couple weeks ago someone broke into the place and opened some water valves and flooded it. No idea who or why. I haven't heard anything more on it, so I am assuming it is still reopening as planned on schedule.

    I don't get across I-70 in this part of Ohio very often, but I watched this place go from being closed, to having just the shop open, then they added fuel, a convenience store, and I thought were about to re-open the restaurant, but yesterday saw they had begun demolishing the building!

    No more Shenandoah.

    It was open up until about a month or so ago.... I heard that they (the owner's) got busted for tax evasion.

    It was probably a nice truckstop in the 70's and 80's but by the time I was there in the late 90's, it was pretty dumpy. I had breakfast there one morning and noticed about half a dozen cockroaches while I was eating. Never went back, after that. The little truckstop across the street has a pretty decent little deli, or at least it did a couple years ago.
