If you are coming into Swift Denver terminal , the restrooms, showers and laundry are down for renovations. Closest shower is either the Sapp bros, or the TA. They have a portable trailer set up with AC, for a TV room. Porta-lotties. Dispatch is still where it has always been next to the mechanic shop.

They aren't screwing around with these renovations. I think they are starting on Phoenix soon if they haven't started yet.

Exact same thing at the Gary terminal right now. They're apparently making a push to update all of the older terminals which is nice. Can't wait to see the new look

I was there last week and I didn't notice anything. Although, I didn't go into the driver lounge. My wife and I picked up a load and left. I can't wait until they do though, because I'm usually there or Albuquerque.

I avoid terminals like the plague. In a perfect world I only want to see the Albuquerque terminal when I park for home time.

Isn't there a Walmart within rock throwing distance, or maybe I'm thinking of a different terminal? Take a left out of the terminal , curve/turn left and Walmart is off to the right, past the dirt lot. At least for a restroom. Maybe even parking but, they do say not to park in the dirt parking lot next to Walmart.

There is a Walmart literally on the way in. I've only been to Denver once, but I did see someone parked in the Walmart. I was wondering why until I pulled into the lot. There were trailers lined up behind other trailers all over the lot.

And Gladhand, I don't blame you. I usually get stuck fueling at those two terminals on the reg though, so I'm forced to at least pull in for a short time.

I would rather have a 5cpm increase in pay. I rarely use the showers at Terminals. I'm with Gladhand, I prefer to avoid them. I wonder if they finished the renovation at Jurupa. I think they hired " Two Men and a Shovel Construction" to do that one!

Yeh, they finished it... Looking pretty good. A friend of mine that runs reefer said that they have already graffitied the stalls though. I didn't notice myself. He had been there the day before.
