Naming Suggestions Sought For Vinita Service Plaza On Will Rogers Turnpike
VINITA, Oklahoma - The Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department wants to re-name the Vinita Service Plaza on the Will Rogers Turnpike.
The plaza is set to close June 4, 2013 for one year.
The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority says the $14.6 million renovation will include rebuilding the McDonald's, adding a Subway restaurant and a Kum N' Go convenience store on both sides of the turnpike.
The 29,135-square foot space originally opened as a glass house restaurant operated by Interstate Hosts in 1957. The facility was at one time the world's largest McDonald's. The glass house also formerly operated as a Howard Johnson's restaurant.
