HARTFORD — Vermont is about to open its newest highway welcome center, this one a big upgrade where the rest area on Interstate 91 in Hartford used to be.
Built with a congressional earmark, the nearly 5,000-square-foot welcome center opens Monday to serve travelers heading south on Interstate 91.
The $4.1-million project has been under construction for 18 months and is expected to host over 300,000 visitors in its first year of service.
It will host exhibits, arts and crafts while promoting Vermont products, cultural attractions and areas of interest throughout the state. It will have free Wi-Fi Internet access, coffee, picnic areas and rest rooms.
