New Murphy Express site work underway
The old florist shop is gone and the dirt work is well underway as construction crews work on the site for a new Murphy Express station being built in Tupelo.
We got out and snapped a photo of the work going on before the skies opened up.
The new Murphy location, at the intersection of Maynard and West Main Street, across from the Walmart Supercenter, is on a busy little corner, with J’s Mart and Dodge’s providing competition.
The property was rezoned earlier this year to accommodate the Murphy, and construction should be complete sometime this fall, officials have said.
