Travel Plaza Master Plan

ITR Concession Company LLC (ITRCC) is finishing Phase 2a of its Travel Plaza Master Plan, which will redefine the existing footprint and amenities offered to Indiana Toll Road travelers. This $70 million 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 restaurant 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.

Throughout this process, drivers along the Indiana Toll Road will continue to experience superior customer service along this critical transportation corridor.
