Work is advancing on a new Speedway gas station at the Oakwood exit off Interstate 74. Motorists looking for fuel will have four options at that exit by the end of the year.
The new Speedway will join a Phillips 66, Pilot, and Loves which are all located at the exit on Oakwood’s north side. The Speedway will not be a truck stop, though, like the other stations there.
Motorists also have several options to eat at the Oakwood exit — including a McDonald’s, Hardees, and Subway — and village leaders hope to attract more development to that area.
Oakwood receives sales tax benefits from the businesses.
