What do Connecticut themed clothing, UConn and Yale logo merchandise, Pez, Whiffle Balls, health foods, and traditional fast food options have in common? They are all now available at the newly reopened Milford Service Plaza located on the Connecticut Turnpike (Interstate 95) between exits 41 and 40.
The Connecticut Department of Transportation reports the northbound service plaza underwent $14 million in renovations which began when the plazas closed in December 2010.
Food offerings at the newly reopened plaza include Subway, McDonald's, Dunkin' Donuts, Sbarro, Good-to-Go Organics, and Robeks Premium Smoothies. Motorists can fuel up with Mobil gasoline and shop at the Fast Freddy's convenience store and a store called "Statement".
The New York Times reported that Good to Go Organics will offer new healthy choices at the plaza such as salads, dried cranberries, feta cheese, organic hot dogs, organic sausages, and Greek yogurt and granola.
Their Milford Good to Go Organics location is open 7 days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. The plaza building itself will be opn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Good to Go Organics has outlets in New York at Central Park and Chelsea Piers in addition to the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
The former Milford southbound service plaza is set to open in April. It was the first service plaza to be completely demolished and rebuilt.
All 23 service plazas on I-95, I-395, and Route 15 are operated by Project Service, LLC under a contract with property owner Connecticut DOT.
A grand reopening ceremony is slated for April.
