LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Today, workers began removing asbestos contaminated soil from a local road project. Posen Construction will spend the next several weeks sifting through soil on the south side of College and Summerlin.
Inspectors found asbestos fibers in some of the concrete at that work site last November.
The Department of Environmental Protection is demanding air monitors near the work site to make sure no asbestos is circulated.
Meanwhile, changes to a major Cape Coral roadway may slow traffic. The third and final phase of the Santa Barbara Boulevard Improvement Project is shifting southbound traffic to the east side of the road at Veteran's Parkway.
