Anyone (maybe Erol) know if Northbound weigh station (US 78) in Olive Branch allows overnight parking?

Thanks!

I never see anyone parked there used to go by multiple times a week when I was local. There is a flying J in Olive Branch.

Yeah, I’m just trying to plan. Stuck at shipper and if Flying J is full when I get there later, I’d like to park at the weigh station.

Thanks

I've never noticed but according to truckers path they have overnight parking.

Upon reading reviews on those weigh stations I would use the truckstop. Several say they were run off the WS lot.

I can't tell for sure, since I simply went to Swift to end my trip. I've been pulled into the scales a few times, but I was just passing through.

Using Google maps I see rest area type parking. And Trucker Path says overnight is ok.

Thanks all! I really appreciate it. I went with C&T Truck Stop on 78/I-22 exit 48. Plenty of parking & a clean restroom. That’s all I need.

Shipper took longer than expected, but it’s all good.

Thanks again!
