Love’s Travel Stop opening in Beaumont this summer

Love’s Travel Stop will be bringing its brand of “highway hospitality” to four-wheel motorists and professional drivers alike with a new location near the Goodyear Plant just outside of Beaumont.
The 13,000-square-foot travel stop will be located on the westbound side of I-10 at Smith Road exit and is projected to open in late summer, according to Ryan Welton, external communications manager for Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores. Construction began in October 2016.

Ray Perryman's Economic forecast for Texas’ smaller areas

By 2021, I am projecting that the 19 smaller Texas Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) will add a total of about 215,000 net new jobs to the state. The growth rates over the period, which spans the 2016 to 2021 time horizon, will vary markedly. Some areas will outpace the state rate of expansion, while others will grow more slowly.
