FAIRFIELD - The newly renovated Fairfield service plaza along the Merritt Parkway in Fairfield has reopened for business.

The plaza is on the northbound side of the highway near exit 46.

Officials say it now has a Dunkin' Donuts, a Subway and a convenience store. They say it will provide another source of gasoline and food to motorists in a region hit hard by Superstorm Sandy.

Officials say the southbound rest stop in Fairfield will reopen in the next couple of months.
