Driftwood Bridge Stopped/Collecting Soil Samples

WESB News: 03/18/08 - Soil Samples Being Collected in Driftwood

An environmental services company from Pittsburgh will be collecting soil samples from various locations around PennDOT's Driftwood Bridge project beginning Wednesday.

Last week, PennDOT workers discovered a strong odor when soil was disturbed near the bridge. PennDOT immediately stopped digging and closed the location until the samples can be taken and analyzed.

While the material in question is not believed to be hazardous, workers will be dressed in protective equipment to obtain the samples in order to comply with OSHA regulations.

PennDOT has met with staff from the Department of Environmental Protection to review the situation. D-E-P will be on site to monitor the collection of soil samples.
