ASHBURN, GA (WALB) -

Travelers going down I-75 in Ashburn will soon have a new travel center to stop at.

Flash Food's newest travel center broke ground in Turner County.

It'll be one of the biggest Flash Foods ever created.

The convenience store will have the standard setup with 14 fueling stations and six diesel truck fueling stations.

Truck drivers passing through will really have plenty to look forward to.

"There's going to be wifi, a truckers lounge there," said Stevi Thompson, Turner Co. Development Authority."There's going to be flat screen TVs, showers, they can do their laundry there. We expect a lot of people on the interstate to stop in Ashburn, Georgia."

The new stop is expected to open on New Year's Eve.
