Vt. creates public-private visitor center on I-89
RANDOLPH — A new public-private visitor center in the works for Interstate 89 would showcase Vermont-made products.
Gov. Peter Shumlin and others have signed off on construction of the center, which would serve both north- and south-bound travelers in Randolph.
The center is part of developer Sam Sammis’ 172-acre plan for the site off Exit 4 that includes residential units, manufacturing space, a hotel and a fitness center. Under a 30-year agreement, Sammis will pay for construction and operation of the center.
The site would be open year-round and would offer rest rooms, complimentary coffee, Vermont tourism information, and Vermont-made products from across the state, which it also will showcase.
