The Bloomington Utilities Service Board approved the final payment December 2nd on a project to repair the Griffy Dam. Utilities Engineer Phil Peden said the company doing the work, Dave O’Mara Contractors, is mostly finished with the project, which has been in progress since the city drained Griffy Lake last year.

The repair work was funded primarily by a federal grant. The total cost was about one-point-four million dollars.

Documents: I-69 Contractors Have Histories of Violations
Crews with vacuum trucks and other equipment are still working this week to clean up eroded soil along the planned path of Interstate 69 in southern Monroe County. Storms earlier this summer caused sediment to flow away from I-69 construction sites and into local waterways after contractors failed to control the erosion. The sediment can make it difficult for aquatic life to survive in the local creeks and streams, and some nearby residents worry their water supplies could be contaminated. Now, documents shared with WFHB have revealed this summer’s erosion problems were only the most recent in a long line of violations committed by contractors building I-69. Assistant News Director Joe Crawford has that story for today’s WFHB feature exclusive.
