Indiana Toll Road Introduces Electric Charging Stations
Jan. 14, 2021—The first two electric car charging stations along the 157-mile Indiana Toll Road (ITR) opened Thursday, according to a press release.
The charging stations are available in Rolling Prairie at the Wilbur Shaw and Knute Rockne travel plazas. As Level 3 charging stations, compatible vehicles will be able to reach an 80 percent charge within 30 minutes.
"We know electric vehicles travel our road, and we're happy to give them a place to charge up," CEO of ITR Concession Company Nic Barr said in the release. "As more customers switch to electric, we'll be ready to deploy more charging infrastructure to our other travel plazas, meeting our customers everywhere they go."
In operation since 1956, the Indiana Toll Road stretches across the northernmost part of Indiana from Ohio to the Illinois state line.
