Hillwood Properties, the developer of the Alliance project, says the travel center fits in well with other high-tech companies in the development because it will offer high-speed laptop connections and e-mail access.
The site is at the southwest corner of Interstate 35W, a main NAFTA corridor, and Texas Highway 170, at Exit 65.
"Alliance's position as an e-commerce hub continues to attract trucking firms and drivers who will take advantage of our high-tech features," says Steve Ramer, vice president of real estate for Williams.
Alliance also includes one of the country's largest intermodal yards, operated by Burlington Northern Santa Fe.
"The need for a travel center at Alliance has grown exponentially each year," says Hillwood President Mike Berry.
The travel center is scheduled to open this fall. Other upcoming Williams locations scheduled to open this year in Texas include:
· Amarillo, I-40, Exit 75
· Dallas, I-20, Exit 470
· El Paso, I-10, Exit 0
· Orange, I-10, Exit 873
· Sequin, I-10, Exit 610
