Service/Travel Plaza Construction

Over-the-road truck drivers, business travelers, weekend warriors, vacationers and anyone else who takes an extended road trip along our interstate highways and turnpikes appreciate the presence of conveniently located service plazas along the way. A 24/7 service plaza gives road-weary drivers and their passengers a chance to stretch, gas up, use the restroom facilities and grab a bite to eat before continuing their journey. Travel plazas can also generate revenue. In Delaware, for instance, a percentage of the sales of food and gasoline from designated service plazas goes to the state government.

Travel plazas have come a long way from the dirty, dingy facilities of years gone by. These days, many contain features designed to heighten the experience for travelers. You can find everything from food courts and playgrounds for kids to pet exercise areas and even farmers markets. The design of many of these facilities has also improved in recent years. In fact some plazas look more like art museums than gas stations or restaurants!

We were the contractors for the Truck Stop Electrification facility, the first of its kind on the turnpike.

The TSE consists of towers equipped with modules designed to fit inside truck windows to supply internet service, television, heat, air conditioning and electrical power to the vehicle while the engine is shut off.

We Understand the Unique Service Plaza Construction Challenges

As with all major building projects, service plaza construction poses a unique set of challenges that must be overcome to achieve a successful outcome. In many cases, new plazas must be constructed within the same footprint of an older facility, which requires an extensive demolition and reconstruction process. Construction deadlines are often tight, especially when a plaza must be completed in time for the busy summer travel season.

With our extensive experience and proven track record of completing projects on schedule and within budget, you can count on Clark Contractors to handle the most daunting plaza construction challenges with ease.
