HMSHost Travel Plazas and Welcome Centers

Travel plazas and welcome centers refresh weary travelers with food, beverages, and fuel services. CHA's innovative touch has crafted a network of rejuvenating rest areas along well-traveled routes.

Seventeen modern travel plazas grace Pennsylvania's Turnpike, while Delaware's I-95 Biden Welcome Center offers seating for up to 770 people and an independent Starbucks. The New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway feature 25 redesigned travel plazas for diverse comforts. Tranquil rest areas on the Adirondack Northway harmonize with striking landscape of the Adirondack State Park. Indiana's Toll Road has four updated plazas, and the Massachusetts Turnpike and Maine Turnpike offer revitalized coffee and drive-thru burger spots.

These visionary projects breathe new life into travel, infusing comfort and enjoyment into every journey.
