New River gas station scheduled to open this month


NEW RIVER – After several months of construction, the New River gas station is scheduled to open this month.

“We are planning on the week of Oct. 16,” site owner Marvin Rose said in an email to The Foothills Focus, adding that, due to inspections, the timeframe could change slightly.

Construction on the gas station and convenience store, located at I-17 and New River Road, began in February 2017. The opening date was originally estimated for July 2017.

The building is over 10,000 sq. ft. and is set on a 4+-acre lot. The station includes gasoline, diesel, and propane, as well as an electric charging station, according to construction plans. A convenience store and SUBWAY restaurant will be on-site, as well.
