Another Speedway gas station in Monroeville to be discussed

Construction plans for a second Speedway gas station in Monroeville are scheduled for discussion by the Monroeville Planning Commission next week.

The convenience store and fuel pumps would be constructed at the intersection of Routes 130 and 48, near an existing Sheetz.

“Any new business is good for the municipality at this point,” planning commission member Tonia Pugliano said Tuesday.

“I don't know if Speedway can compete with Sheetz, but who knows?”

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday. The planning commission could recommend the plan to Monroeville Council, but council would have the final vote.

Ohio-based Speedway — a subsidiary of Marathon Petroleum — now operates in nine states after pushing into Pennsylvania and Tennessee last year.

Sunoco stations so far converted into Speedways in southwestern Pennsylvania include the Old William Penn Highway location near Center Road.

Speedway officials also are trying to build stations in Unity Township, New Stanton, Delmont and Oakmont.
