ROCHELLE — Speculation has been swirling around town as to what new business or restaurant is building in front of Walmart.

The City of Rochelle confirmed Thursday that Murphy USA gas stations began construction this week. Construction for the gas station is expected to last 10 weeks, however no projected date for opening is available.

Following a Facebook post to the News-Leader page on Thursday, residents had mixed opinions on the new gas station.

“How about a game store or music store or a nicer place to eat. Rochelle has enough places to get gas,” Duain Altepeter suggested.
