Work crews get permits, return to W. Ashley gas station

WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - Construction crews are back to work at the Hess gas station on Saint Andrews Boulevard in West Ashley after operators came up with the proper permits.

The City of Charleston issued a stop work order last week after discovering the operators didn't have the proper paperwork.

Charleston officials say the crew is de-branding the gas station, located in front of the old Food Lion, because Hess has decided not to renew its lease on the property.

Workers are removing the station's canopy, piping, tanks, and field dispensers.

City officials say there's nothing currently in the works for the property.
