Rest Plaza Closing

As part of Phase One of its Travel Plaza Mas­ter Plan, the Indi­ana Toll Road will be clos­ing the Steuben County travel plaza build­ings and fuel sta­tions at the 146 mile marker on Thurs­day. Demo­li­tion is sched­uled to take place in 2016. It was decided to close the Steuben County travel plazas after it was deter­mined it was unnec­es­sary to the long-term plan due to the close dis­tance of neigh­bor­ing plazas. The Steuben loca­tion offers only fuel and restrooms. The owner, I.T.R. Con­ces­sion Com­pany, says more than $30 mil­lion will be spent on the demo­li­tion and reha­bil­i­ta­tion of eight travel plaza build­ings. In addi­tion to the Angola plaza, the Howe-LaGrange travel plazas will be torn down and rebuilt into full ser­vice plazas too. I.T.R. says the newly designed struc­tures will fea­ture mod­ern travel facil­i­ties with state-of-the-art tech­nol­ogy and new food options. Con­struc­tion is sched­uled to be com­pleted by early 2018.
