Indiana Toll Road operators plan to demolish, rebuild rest stops


SOUTH BEND, Indiana — The rest stops along the Indiana Toll Road will be torn down and rebuilt.

Ken Daley is the new CEO of the Indiana Toll Road Concession Company. He tells WNDU-TV (http://bit.ly/1ImycZO ) that the 1950s-era plazas will be demolished. He says the rest stops have served motorists well but they need to be moved "into the current day."

Daley says the preliminary budget to build new rest stops is $34 million and the project is in design development. He says the company wants to finish the project "as quickly as we can."

Daley says there also are plans for $130 million in pavement improvements over the next five years. Most of that work will take place on the western part of the roadway.
