The truck stop in Cusseta, Cusseta Travel Plaza, was unexpectedly closed over the weekend. The truck stop will be closed until further notice.

Cusseta Travel Plaza is one of many locations that have been temporarily closed due to a company called Mountain Express Oil liquidating bankruptcy, according to a notice from Pilot. The notice lists a Pilot truck stop in Newnan, Georgia, as the next closest location.

Pilot provided a statement to the VTN via email.

It is unclear when or if the truck stop will be reopened.
