TravelCenters of America has reopened the former Willie’s Place truck stop in Carl’s Corner, Texas, as a Petro Stopping Place full-service travel center.
TCA bought the Dallas-area property March 1 after it was posted for foreclosure.
The Carl’s Corner convenience store and truck stop opened Willie Nelson’s Truck Stop, known as Willie’s Place, in 2008. Nelson was an equity holder in the business.
Before reopening, the site at exit 374 off I-35 underwent a $1.5 million renovation, including:
Additional amenities, including a Dunkin’ Donuts, are planned.
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
