HENDERSON, NV, May 14, 2018 -- Joseph DeSimone, Jr., owner of the Railroad Pass Hotel and Casino (http://www.railroadpass.com/) and Henderson based real estate firm, First Federal Realty DeSimone (http://desimonecommercial.com) announced today the opening of the 8,500 square foot Travel Center at the Railroad Pass.
The Travel Center, built on 24 acres is located south of the Railroad Pass Hotel and Casino. The center includes an 8,500 square foot convenience store with 20 Chevron fuel pumps, 7 diesel Semi-truck gas stations, 12 Tesla super charging stations, a truck scale, and a 2,000 gallon propane dispensing tank. There is parking for about 100 trucks, 30 recreational vehicles, and an expanded parking lot for cars.
The Travel Center includes a Capriotti's Sandwich Shop, a wide assortment of snacks, beverages, sundries, souvenirs, and 15 slot machines. Players from both the Railroad Pass and the Travel Center will be able to earn gas vouchers to be redeemed at the Travel Center with our "Gas at the Pass" promotion.
The Railroad Pass Hotel and Casino is Nevada's longest running casino and is currently in its 87th year of operation. The prime location created the need for this significant development project. It is located on the Interstate 11 Bypass, which is close to completion. The Bypass is a fifteen mile stretch of Interstate 11, which saves motorists significant travel time between the O'Callaghan-Tillman Bridge and Railroad Pass. The massive freeway project will cost $320,000,000 and is expected to be connected by July 2018.
