Construction for The Crossing Travel Market in Winters, Texas, started in February. The travel stop will offer amenities for general motorists and truckers alike and aims to have a local feel.

It will have four highway entry and exit points, with two each from Highway 83 and Highway 153. There will be five truck fueling lanes offering highway diesel, off-road diesel and diesel exhaust fluid.

For truckers, The Crossing Travel Market will offer about 20 truck parking spaces, three showers, washer/dryer access and a relaxation lounge.  

Food options will include Krispy Krunchy Chicken, Hunt Bros. Pizza, and The Crossing’s Hometown Grill. There will be room for 40 patrons inside the store with additional seating available via a covered outdoor area.

“We are very excited to get our project off the ground, and we are humbled by and very grateful for the support that’s been shown by our community as we have prepared for this project,” said Doug Wheat, general partner for The Crossing Travel Market. “We are optimistic about the positive economic impact and growth potential that this can have for Winters, Runnels County and the Texas Midwest.”
