Update On New Gas Station-C Store & Strip Mall In Bismarck
The new gas station and strip mall that will be going in on South Washington is starting to take shape. You may have seen the signs posted by now, "Coming Soon-On the Run". This open field is about a block north of the intersection of South Washington and Burleigh Avenue on the east side of Washington.
The walls are going up on the gas station and according to my sources, this gas station will be operational by late summer. Sometime in August is the target.
This used to be just a farm field but it was taken out of production a couple of years back. I figured that it was going to be just another housing development, as most of that area is being developed that way. As it turns out, I was wrong. What's new?
On the Run is a Canadian company and they already have a gas station and c-store on Tyler Parkway. According to sources close to the process, the company is hoping to also add a car wash with their gas and convenience store. There's also construction taking place for a strip mall going into this development with a coffee shop. No word on the progress of that portion of this new construction.
Not everybody is excited about this new development. According to a source near to the project, say some area residents are concerned about the traffic buildup that would occur on this 2-way street. Some members of the public who live close to the situation are especially concerned about the potential car wash and increased traffic.
I think this would be a good thing for this part of south Bismarck despite the increased traffic.
