BRAZIL, Ind. - A highway upgrade in a western Indiana city has been delayed two months by contamination from a former dry-cleaning business.
Indiana Department of Transportation spokeswoman Debbie Calder says construction work had been set to begin in mid-April along U.S. 40 through Brazil, but that work is now scheduled to start June 2.
Calder tells the Tribune-Star that more than 30 INDOT employees and project workers for Gradex Inc. will get training in hazardous waste management to remove tainted soil and water from the site some 25 miles east of Terre Haute.
Indiana Department of Environmental Management spokesman Barry Sneed says officials were notified in March that the chemical solvent perchloroethylene is present in ground water in the project's right-of-way.
The contaminated site is the former Adamson Fabric Care Service.
