(LaPorte County, IN) - A much talked about the project outside Michigan City appears to be back on track. For a couple of years now, Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores has been interested in building along U.S 421 just south of Interstate 94.
A purchase agreement for the company to build on 10 acres has been worked out between the firm and seller, said Matt Reardon with the LaPorte County Office of Economic and Community Development.
Reardon said officials are still working on extending water and sewer underneath the interstate to the site which could start this summer. Reardon said it’s about an $18 million project.
