Lynch Land Development proposes to convert an empty site south of Interstate 84 off Eisenman Rd. for the project. It would include a large 11,010 square foot store building with a travel store and driver lounge. Crews would also build two separate fueling areas – one for trucks and another for automobiles.

The site would include 417,553 square feet of pavement and 210,459 square feet of landscaping. It would include 40 spaces for cars as well as 148 spaces for semi-trucks and four bike parking slots.

Future phases of the project could include a truck repair shop and a warehouse building, according to the application.

The large 21.34-acre site backs up to Interstate 84 across the freeway from the Micron Technolgy area. Primary access for the site would come for Eisenman Rd. near the Isaac’s Canyon/Memory Rd. interchange. That large freeway exit opened in 1997 with a massive six-lane overpass. Micron paid about half of the cost of the interchange, but it sat largely unused over the last twenty-plus years.

Future of Downtown

A future access point for Mr. Gas Boise could come from the future extension of Lake Hazel Rd., which ACHD has in its long-range plan. The road would connect areas of south Boise to the Memory Rd. interchange.

Mr. Gas operates five stations in the Magic Valley, and started operations in 1923. It opened a large truck stop location in Jerome in 2018, featuring amenities like a car wash and RV lanes. The company started advertising in the Boise area in recent months, including a billboard on Interstate 84 directing drivers to the Jerome truck stop.

Editor’s note: Due to changes with the City of Boise’s permit filing system, we cannot currently link you directly to application materials.
