The construction project has gotten rezoning clearance from the Beavercreek Planning Commission and will be up for City Council's approval later this month.
The project calls for tearing down the old station, 2,325 square feet built in 1978, and building a new store of approximately 4,600 square feet, along with a 5,400 square-foot fuel canopy that will shelter 16 gasoline pumps.

"The proposed convenience store is a 'Speedy Café' prototype and constructed of quik-brik material," according to Speedway's project description on file with the city.
Speedway's plans indicate construction would take three to four months from start to finish, according to Beavercreek City Planner Randy Burkett.
"I would anticipate that they get approval for a site plan by City Council sometime this winter and permits be ready for construction by spring," Burkett said.
The plans require Speedway to expand its property, and the Enon-based company has an option to buy about a third of an acre from its southern neighbor, Ollie Davis Medical Arts and Education Center, which is owned by Kettering Health Network.
Most of that third of an acre is a detention pond to the rear of the gas station. It collects stormwater runoff from the surrounding commercial properties. Speedway's plans indicate doing away with the pond and building an underground water detention system.
