The Shape Of Sheetz To Come

Work is moving right along at the site of the new Sheetz in North Warren.

Over the past week crews have continued to work through the rain and snow and began putting up walls at the site on Monday.

Kingsview Paving Manager John Rauh said it typically takes five to six months to complete a project when working through the winter months. Underground sewer and water is complete and crews have started to work on the storm drainage at the site, which Rauh said might be completed in the middle of March.

But for right now, “we’re on schedule,” he said.

G & R Excavating Demolition from Tyrone started removing abandoned mobile homes and a building at the site in September.

Workers from Kingsview Paving cleared the site of debris and trees and laid foundation in early January. Three 10,000- gallon fuel storage tanks arrived at the work site in mid January.

When construction is complete, plans indicate a 6,489-square-foot area with a drive-through, a fueling island with seven “multi-pump dispensers”, two driveways on Vine Street, a “right-in, right-out” lane from the southbound lane of Market Street Extension, and a driveway across from the Warren Commons entrance on Jackson Run Road.
