Travel Plaza Master Plan
Travel Plaza Master Plan
The Indiana Toll Road is finishing Phase 2a of its Travel Plaza Master Plan, which will redefine the existing footprint and amenities offered to Toll Road travelers.
This $70 million massive restoration plan includes the demolition and rehabilitation of eight travel plaza buildings. After this project is complete, the newly designed structures will feature modern travel facilities with state-of-the-art technology and new food options.
Sunoco will be the sole operator of the Portage and Elkhart locations, which will be rebuilt into fuel and convenience stores. It will also operate the new fuel stations at the Rolling Prairie and Howe locations, which will be rebuilt into full-service plazas with HMSHost operating and managing the restaurant facilities.
ITRCC operations and maintenance will not be impacted by this project. We will continue to provide superior customer service along this critical transportation corridor.
