The New York State Thruway Authority Monday announced the reopening of the new Warners Service Area (Interstate 90 westbound mile marker 292) in Warners. The location is the 15th new service area to open to Thruway customers as part of the $450 million private investment to redevelop and modernize all 27 Thruway service areas and the first of five select service areas that will include an adult changing station to improve accessibility for all motorists.

The Warners Service Area is located on I-90 westbound between exit 39 (Syracuse-Fulton-I-690-NY Route 690) and exit 40 (Weedsport-Auburn-NY Route 34).

New restaurant options include:

  • Burger King
  • Chick-fil-A
  • Starbucks (Drive-Thru)
  • Applegreen C-Store
  • Taste NY Food and Drink Products

Other amenities include:

  • Outdoor seating
  • Dog walking area
  • Private nursing area
  • Adult changing station
  • Digital tourism kiosk
  • Four Level 3 high-speed EV chargers**

“The Service Area Redevelopment project is more than halfway complete, and with the opening of the Warners Service Area, we’re increasing accessibility for motorists with the addition of an adult changing station,” Thruway Authority Acting Executive Director Frank G. Hoare said. “Adult changing stations provide those with special needs a safe and secure space for caregivers to provide assistance.”

In addition to the Warners Service Area, an adult changing station will be included in the Angola, Ontario, Pattersonville and Sloatsburg service areas. A map with anticipated reopening dates can be found at

All 27 service areas are being redeveloped as part of a $450 million public-private partnership with Empire State Thruway Partners. No toll or tax dollars are being used for construction.

As part of the project, Applegreen will be installing at least four universal fast charging stations (Level 3) at every service area with up to 350kW of power that support all electric vehicles, including Teslas, with up to 8 chargers at the larger locations. Currently, there are 41 Level 3 chargers available statewide with more than 70 scheduled to be available by the end of 2024. The Thruway Authority plans to create a robust, end-to-end corridor of more than 130 fast charging EV stations with an average of 30 miles between each location system wide by the end of this project.
