The state Department of Transportation – and the Indiana Republican Party – are striking back at continued attacks over the current condition of Indiana’s roads
Indiana is asking a state sub-contractor to refund just over $5 million after substandard asphalt was used on several state road projects.
A key legislator says a review of whether INDOT contractors have been using substandard asphalt could complicate efforts to increase highway funding.
There are several sizeable cracks in the asphalt just south of the Patoka River Bridge on the Pike/Gibson County Line.
O’Mara Contractors is planning on building an asphalt plant in Brazil, but residents are not happy about it.
