GREENFIELD — A decision on a gas station’s expansion plan at Interstate 70 and Ind. 9 has been delayed another two weeks amid neighbors’ concerns it could become a truck stop.
The Greenfield Board of Works has been asked to approve Speedway’s request to cut the boulevard at 110 Opportunity Parkway in Progress Park and make changes to curbs to accommodate trucks driving in and out of the station. The company plans to install three diesel pumps at the station, and will foot the entire bill for the changes to city streets at about $17,500.
The issue was stalled late last month, when the board voted 2-1 in favor of the agreement; but not enough members were present for the vote to count as a quorum.
Tuesday, city planning director Joanie Fitzwater said another delay was needed because representatives of Eli Lilly and Co. want to look over traffic studies to see how the gas station’s expansion could affect Elanco, whose headquarters are nearby.
