    First things first...mods, if something like this already exists somewhere, feel free to delete this.

    ******
    I've been thinking for a while now that it may be a good idea to get a thread rolling (and hopefully pinned) with news of the latest truck stop openings. Anyone agree?

    Well, I'll start this off with this latest update--and this one is kinda rare in that PFJ rarely greenfields new locations these days, but...

    Marshall welcomes new Pilot Flying J truck stop

    ...PFJ just opened a new location in Illinois, I-70 x147 in Marshall, on IL-1. According to the article it only has 64 parking spaces...but that's 64 spaces more than there were before.

    As for other things that I've noticed while rolling around...

    - Love's is building a new location across from the existing TA Chicago North, I-94 x1a on the IL side of the IL/WI state line.

    - A new Love's is also going up in Missoula MT, I want to say exit 96 where the Town Pump and TA already are. It'll be on the same side of the freeway as the TA, to the south.

    - Staying in Montana, from what I saw the last time I went through Butte, a few days ago, it looks like they're eyeballing a new location about seven miles west of Butte, right near or just before the 15/90 convergence. (This will be great since I think the only other Loves that currently exists in MT along the 90 is way down in Hardin just before the Bighorn Battlefield exit.)

    - I saw a thread for this one already, but another new Love's is going up in Big Cabin OK, pretty much right next to the turnpike toll booths.

    Anyone else see anything else new out there, feel free to add!

    Honestly, I don't know why anyone would stay at a Love's in Montana instead of a Town Pump.

    Updating the thread... my eyes passed a new Love's nearing completion at the 310 off I-75 in Georgia, just south of Dalton. For those who've had the "pleasure" of dealing with the Loves 28 miles further south down in Gilman (x283), this will be a welcome addition. No clue how much parking it'll have, but it will have a Burger King in it (ehh).

    Also, only because I was just there yesterday... the Huck's (Pilot) in Ottumwa KY (x40 off I-24) is undergoing a full-scale remodel. There's still ample parking and fuel lanes, but half the store is zip locked. Just a little advance notice in case anyone is in the area.

    In case snow closes the road? About the only one I can think of. I like the TP deli.

    The Love's empire continues to grow...new one going up on SR 49 in Ohio, first exit right before the west gate of the 80/90 toll road. That one should probably help out the steel haulers coming in and out of Delta (and for those who get stuck going in there, the Menards DC down near Holiday City).
