The long-awaited Navajo Blue Travel Plaza is opening Friday at Twin Arrows. The gas station and market has been under construction for months and work has finally finished on the facility. The opening comes at a key time for Navajo Gaming as casinos have been closed for months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The project employed 200 people from five different contractors during construction and it will employ 47 full-time employees going forward. The market will serve freshly prepared frybread and tortillas, as well premium grade Navajo beef and more Navajo products, as well as regular convenience store products. It will also have showers and laundry facilities for truck drivers. The Navajo Blue Travel Plaza will open Friday at 1 p.m.
