WEST GARDINER, Maine (AP)&nbsp- An $11.6 million Maine Turnpike service plaza is taking shape in West Gardiner.

The plaza, which is scheduled to open in November, will closely resemble the turnpike’ s service plaza in Kennebunk. Named as possible tenants in the new facility are Starbucks Coffee, Burger King, KFC, an ice cream vendor and Z-Market, a convenience store.

Steve McGee Construction is responsible for buildings and a car parking lot. Bridge Corp. is creating the truck parking lot and the ramp around the building.

The project engineer for the Maine Turnpike Authority says Route 126 traffic continues to flow in both directions, but lanes may be narrowed during construction.
