Located north of Atlanta on I-75 at exit 127, TA Cartersville will feature the company's new modern look and amenities concept, which premiered at a prototype stop near Denver in May. The new facility is part of a $250 million network-wide capital improvement program that TA began in 1997.
The new design includes a front entrance bearing a large TA logo on a 42-foot-tall pylon accented by a red neon arch and "Welcome" sign. The entrance leads into a large, vaulted, glass-enclosed main central hall.
New showers feature marble tiles, Corian vanities and seamless flooring. Dining options will range from the full-service Country Pride restaurant to fast-food offerings such as Burger King, Popeye's and Sbarro. A three-bay service center will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There will be parking for 200 trucks, with Park 'N View available.
