Ground was broken Friday, May 29, for a $10 million truck stop development project on Interstate 10 near the Maricopa County line. Avenue 75E LLC plans to build the truck stop on 15.9 acres at the southwest corner of the interchange of I-10 and Avenue 75E.
The groundbreaking was attended by the partners in the development and their families, and officials from the La Paz Economic Development Corporation, La Paz County, Arizona Public Service and the Parker and McMullen Valley Chambers of Commerce.
Skip Becker, President of the La Paz EDC, has worked closely with the family that is partnering in this project. At the groundbreaking, he said the project was started three years ago. He added it represents a major investment in eastern La Paz County.
