(La Porte County, IN) - Work has started on running water and sewer lines underneath Interstate 94 to the site of a proposed truck stop outside Michigan City. The lines will serve a Love’s truck stop and convenience store planned just south of the U.S 421 interchange.
Matt Reardon with the La Porte County Office of Economic and Community Development said projects like these happen when officials from the county and city, along with other interested parties, work together.
Water and sewer service should be available at the site soon enough for the construction of the truck stop to begin in the spring.
Three commercial distribution warehouses are also planned on the same site.
The project has been a few years in the making but delayed until differences were resolved over the location of a pipeline.
Love’s has more than 500 locations in 41 states.
