Construction crews have started the process of restoring a large gas station on Route 88 in Brick.

Workers were seen setting up equipment at the former Mobil, then Lukoil, station at the corner of Jordan Road and the state highway. The station, which once included a McDonald’s restaurant and drive-through car wash, has been vacant for several years. Lukoil received approval from the township’s zoning board earlier this year to revive the property.

Lukoil said in its application that it will convert an existing 1,212 square foot building on the site to a convenience store, replace the eight existing fuel dispensers with six new dispensers, and add diesel fuel dispensers to the station. There will also be modifications to the walkways at the site.

    With the demise of the station on Bridge Ave and 88 this station should do well. A crazy game of revolving doors and musical chairs.

    Well about damn time, Lukoil seemed to have abandoned this station, empty several years? Try about five plus. I don’t trust Lukoil about a year after it closed, it reopened again, the truth behind that was, they wanted to get rid of the gas that was in the underground tanks. As soon as that gas was gone, they closed again. They decorated the place like it was reopening, had flags all over the place, you blinked and they were gone again. That’s why I don’t trust Lukoil. The station has become one big pigeon coop. The day I see it open again with a convenience store and selling gas, is the day I will believe they are going to do what they say they are going to do. Plus the fact when and if that new Wawa is built on Jack Martin and 88. All the new gas stations will close along with every single convenience store in the area, they won’t be able to complete with Wawa.

      So you think they spent $1000’s to reopen the station just to get rid of maybe 2000 gallons of gas at a profit of about 8 cents a gallon??

      Too close to Wawa why would you ok lukoil to open if your plans are to approve the Wawa at the old trailer park area rt 88 there’s already three gas stations within I mile already

        WaWa is not the same as Lukoil or the other gas stations on 88.
        WaWa is a great convenience store.
        The more gas stations the more competition and the lbetter the price and service.
        Hopefully they build a Quickcheck down the road from WaWa and cause more competition and even lower prices and better service.

        Phil that’s my point if Wawa gets approval we don’t need more gas station on rt 88 and the stations on the road now will suffer . WAwa is a full service gas and convenience store that will dominate

    Trump and the Russians had a secret deal to re-open this station after stealing the election.

  • Phil McCracken

    I hope the Russians rig the election so Brando wins.

    I try hard not to gas up at any of these “Hajji Marts.” And if I must it’s cash only. Even then there’s a good chance you paid for premium and got regular.
