Although construction is underway on the new Wendy's restaurant in Ballwin at Manchester Road and Seven Trails Drive, there is no set date for when crews will begin working on the new U-Gas station also planned for the area where the old Rothman Furniture once sat.
The U-Gas station is expected to begin construction in the Spring of 2013, according to Ballwin Mayor Tim Pogue.
Brad Goette, chief marketing and merchandising officer with U-Gas, tells Patch it's likely construction will begin in the spring, but the company just doesn't have a set date yet.
"That's our best guess. We really don't know. We really don't have a designated date. Right now, there are so many variables to work through," Goette explained. "We hope to get it up and functioning by the end of 2013."
Goette said there are currently 19 U-Gas stations operating in the St. Louis market, including one in Waterloo, IL.

Also previously reported by Patch, the Wendy's at Manchester Road and Seven Trails Drive is still set to open at by the end of the year with a target date of Dec. 18.
Mayor Pogue had no update beyond that at this time.
