The Drivers Travel Center in Fort Worth, Texas, reopened earlier this week after being closed for renovations.
The location was closed for over a year while work was done. The truck stop is located off Interstate 35 at the North-bound Papurt Street Exit. Drivers Travel Center is a part of the North American Truck Stop Network (NATSN).
Erin Hernandez is the manager and said the truck stop is now all new.
“We built a brand new building, everything’s brand new,” Hernandez said.
Amenities at the truck stop include a dining room, driver’s lounge, three kitchens, scales, a Subway, a Chester’s and a Rico’s Tacos. There are seven diesel fueling lanes. The truck stop has four private showers and 12 restrooms. It’s open 24/7, with the restaurants closing around 10 p.m. When truckers fill up with diesel, they receive a free meal and fountain drink.
The new Drivers Travel Center also has an expanded retail outlet for truck supplies.
“We have a lot more to offer,” Hernandez said.
The truck stop has about 98 truck parking spots, Hernandez said. Truck parking is free for the first two hours and then costs $10 for 24 hours. Driver’s may also choose to pay $120 for parking for the month.
“I literally got to watch this place grow from the ground up, so when it opened it was just like sticking a kid in a candy shop,” Hernandez said. “This is the most luxurious truck stop that I think I’ve ever seen.”
