Service plaza on I-95 in Branford to reopen Wednesday

Posted: Updated:
BRANFORD, CT (WFSB) -

The newly renovated service plaza on Interstate 95 north in Branford will reopen Wednesday at noon.

The plaza is the 23rd Connecticut highway service plaza to be renovated.

Project Service, LLC has a 35-year contract to renovate and operate the state's 23 service plazas, which are all open 24 hours a day.

The Branford plaza, as well as others that have been, or will be renovated, has a series of green features. The plazas will qualify to operate to silver LEED standards. The Branford plaza has solar panels, facilities for single-stream recycling and idle-reduction technology for tractor-trailers.

"We are committed to creating environmentally friendly service plazas, while also providing great food choices, clean restrooms, fuel and convenience," said Paul Landino, president and CEO of Project Service. "We have had great success with the service plazas we have completed so far, and look forward to continuing to serve those traveling on Connecticut's highways as we work to renovate the remaining service plazas in the state."

The next service plazas to close for renovations is the Fairfield southbound plaza and the Madison northbound plaza.
