LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Clean-up efforts to remove asbestos from a road construction project in Lee County have been delayed until tomorrow, Thursday, May 20.
Work was originally scheduled to take place today. The DEP is meeting with the involved parties to discuss the clean-up operation, thereby delaying the actual clean-up operation.
The road widening and flyover at the intersection of College Parkway and Summerlin Road has been slowed since asbestos was discovered back in November.
To ensure the safety of the workers and the public, the clean-up crews will wear protective suits, masks, and air monitors to ensure they don't breath in the hazardous material. Barriers will be erected and water will be sprayed on the ground throughout the asbestos removal project in order to keep the dust from spreading.
The asbestos will be taken and dumped at a landfill near Lake Okeechobee.
