Travel Center Brings Jobs to the Valley

HARRISONBURG, Va -- Pilot Travel Center, just north of Harrisonburg on Route 11 near Exit 251, is now open. That means more jobs for those who live in the Valley.

The new travel center is bringing 55 new jobs to the area. That number could go up depending on the travel center's success.

The center has food from both Subway and Cinnabon restaurants.

Commercial truck drivers can use the showers located in the center and faster gas pumps at the station will allow for quick fill-ups.

Kyle Ross is a regional manager for the company and he hopes that this center will benefit Harrisonburg.

“We want to be partners with the community,” said Ross. “That's one of big our big goals with Pilot-Flying J is to partner with the community. We welcome all the residents of Harrisonburg to come see us.”

This center is expected to generate almost $3-million in both state and federal taxes.
