The St. Louis County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing 7 p.m. Monday, July 27, to hear a proposal for a gas station and travel plaza/truck stop development on vacant land directly next to the Jefferson Barracks Bridge along Interstate 255 and the Mississippi River.

See a gallery of the location of the proposed gas station and travel plaza/truck stop below:  

The zoning plan calls for a convenience store with gas pumps, including truck fueling and parking, a fast-food restaurant with a drive-thru and two advertising signs.

The gas station/travel plaza would be a 19,227-square-foot building under the proposal, with 131,894 square feet of new pavement for parking lots and 324,990 square feet of green area. The existing green area is 218,680 square feet, according to plans filed by the developer with the county. Existing pavement area is 257,680 square feet.
