Vinita Plaza To Be Demolished Tuesday

An iconic turnpike stop will be turned to rubble Tuesday morning. Crews will demolish the Vinita Service Plaza.

It will happen between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. Officials shut down the plaza in early June and will be closed for about a year.

During that time, there will be no rest stops on the Will Rogers Turnpike between Tulsa and the Missouri State line. A larger convenience store, new restrooms, a McDonald's, and a Subway restaurant will be added.
