A partnership between the Indiana Toll Road, the South Shore Convention and Visitors Authority and other counties to promote tourism and economic development on I-80/90. As part of the partnership $70 million has been allocated for demolition and rehabilitation of eight travel plaza buildings along I-80/90.
“The Indiana Toll Road is a quick and easy way to get from the Illinois border to the Ohio border, and this is a great opportunity for telling the story of Indiana and all the stops travelers can make along the way,” stated Speros A. Batistatos, President/CEO of the South Shore CVA in a news release. He continued, “The partnership is a natural fit to showcase the brand-new Mascot Hall of Fame in Whiting, lakefront casinos, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, University of Notre Dame, Studebaker National Museum and Pokagon State Park, among others along the route.”
Millions of motorists travel along I-80/90 daily and as a result of the partnership, will see promotions for destinations along Lake County to Steuben County. The travel plazas will showcase images and video of area attractions.
