Do you remember back this summer, we told you about a possible truck stop coming to Efland? It looks like it might be ready to happen. The land for the Buc-ee’s truck stop sits across the line in Orange County, and last week, the Orange County Planning Board approved it. This would be a huge thing. A 64 thousand square foot retail area. 120 gas pumps, and eventually a 120 room hotel. There would even be a medical facility, a bank and of course, restaurants. Now that it has been approved, the developer says he will start construction in 2022. This will be off the interstate at the exit to the Highway 70 connector there in Efland. The Orange County Planning Board says they expect the new Buc-ee’s will bring in around 2 million dollars a year to the local tax base. They are going to call it Efland Station.
