Buc-ee’s, the Texas-based gas and convenience store chain, submitted more plans for the 104-pump station it wants to build off Interstate 95 in St. Johns County.

The company filed additional engineering plans with the St. Johns River Water Management District for roadway improvements next to the proposed travel center at southeast International Golf Parkway and World Commerce Center Parkway.

The site is west of I-95.

Traffic improvements include:

• Construction of new turn lanes on International Golf parkway and World Commerce Parkway.

• Construction of new turn lanes on the I-95 off-ramps.

• Milling and resurfacing the existing roadway.

• Installation of signals.

• Landscape improvements.

Plans were prepared by Jacksonville-based civil engineering firm England-Thims & Miller Inc.

England-Thims & Miller prepared the site engineering plans in June 2018 for on-site development of the proposed 53,254-square-foot, single-story building with 104 fueling stations and 392 parking spaces.

Buc-ee’s, based near Houston, bought the 13.71-acre St. Johns County site in November 2017. It has not announced a completion date. 

Jacksonville Daily Record news partner News4Jax reported July 22 that the project remains in the planning phase.

“We have not finalized all necessary development plans to allow us to begin construction," Buc-ee’s Ltd. General Counsel Jeff Nadalo told News4Jax via email. “We likely will not open until 2021."
