New Haven project has 2 eateries

Truckers driving on U.S. 30 will soon have another place to stop for a shower or a sandwich.

Pilot Travel Centers LLC broke ground this week on a new truck plaza at 3105 Doyle Road in New Haven.

The Tennessee company has obtained a $5 million building permit for the project, but Pilot officials declined to release details to The Journal Gazette.

A spokeswoman said the company, which operates the Flying J brand, doesn’t discuss the amenities in its new plazas until they are ready to open.

The travel center is being built three years after the Indiana Supreme Court ruled the project could continue despite claims it violated a local zoning ordinance.

Brian Yoh, New Haven’s planning and economic development director, said plans filed with the city indicate the main building will include a driver’s lounge, a convenience store, private showers and laundry facilities.
