STEUBEN CO., Ind. (ADAMS) – The Indiana Department of Transportation has announced the reopening of the Pigeon Creek Welcome Center in time for the holiday travel season.
While the main facility opened Wednesday, November 23, the new private restroom facility will remain closed at this time. Drivers should also use caution in the area as the contractor will continue to finalize cosmetic features over the next several weeks.
The facility, located on southbound I-69 near mile marker 345, closed in September for INDOT and its contracting partners to safely provide multiple improvement projects including:
All-new parking lot
Safer, expanded access to the facility and services
Separated parking for passenger vehicles and trucks
Approximately three times the capacity of the original lot with a total of 90 parking spots
A new private restroom facility with four individual locking units that include showers and toilets
New sidewalks fronting each parking lot and the Welcome Center
New general and safety lighting for all parking lots and buildings
Renovated interstate entrance and exit ramps
New site and lot drainage
A new garbage and recycling containment stockade
