    One is sorely needed in Massachusetts,New Hampshire,Maine or Vermont. Especially to avoid the s***show in Sturbridge at the Pilot on I-84.

    You have Flynn’s or that pride dump by 91 in the area, then a couple of other small ones spread out

    The Flynn’s in Shrewsbury just had someone commit suicide in the men’s bathroom last July.

    The Pride dump in Chicopee is a pay to park truck stop-$14 parking or fuel 75 gallons. Plus a lot of locals use it to park their trucks and/or trailers like a drop lot.

    every time I get fuel in Chicopee it cost me a set of filters too,

    I’ll fuel in Westfield now at the citgo then there’s a few hiding spots off the exit for trucks

    there’s a mr Mike’s or something like that off 190 in Leominster too that’s a decent size with showers

    Kansas City KS could use a Love s either off of I 435 or I 635 South of I 70. That Pilot which is an independent and Quik Trip off KS Hwy 32 is always full and run down. And the truck stop off I 435 in Edwardsville is a dump

    More or less. 91 could use some more truck stops between Springfield and Brattleboro. Due to the truck traffic one is definitely needed along I-495 between I-95 and the Mass Pike but the rich folks along that corridor would be up in arms on that matter.

    I read through some of the posts and don't think I came across one post that suggested Los Angeles CA either no one ever goes there or there are places in greater demand, my vote definitely goes to putting up a Loves anywhere within a 20 mile radius of central LA. The only two truck stops I know in LA are the 2 TA's on the I -10 and they are always packed to capacity despite drivers having to pay if they stay for more than 1 hour.

    No one can afford the costs to build a truckstop that close to central LA. The cost of the land and the permitting process would be prohibitive and they would never get one past the NIMBY crowd.
