County approves Wawa gas station despite opposition

Palm Beach County commissioners approved zoning and land use changes Thursday that will allow a Wawa gas station and eatery to be built at Hypoluxo and High Ridge roads.

Commissioners approved the changes despite intense and broad opposition to the station. County staff members received 649 calls opposing the station with many citing concerns about increases in traffic, noise, pollution and crime.
