TURTLECREEK TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

A controversial truck stop in Turtlecreek Township was given the green light by officials on Friday.

Warren County Commissioners approved the proposed 'Flying J Travel Plaza', to be located at the southeast corner of Interstate 71 at Ohio 123.

The 11-acre development would include the truck stop, Wendy's and other retail space.

The area is the second most underdeveloped interchange in Warren County, and supporters hope to bring more business to the area.

The Lebanon Community Group argued the area is not zoned for those businesses, postponing the decision for commissioners back in January. Opponents say it will increase area traffic and hurt future development of more 'attractive' businesses.
