FORT MYERS, Fla. - Crews have resumed sifting through dirt at the Summerlin flyover project at College Parkway in South Fort Myers.

The dirt was set aside after asbestos was found at the site last year.

The dirt where it was found is all being removed, but before it can be taken away, crews have to sift through it to make sure there's not more asbestos in it.

This work stopped temporarily while the county and the construction companies worked out some issues.

The Department of Environmental Protection is on site monitoring the dirt removal.

The agency suspect more asbestos may be found.

"I believe there has been some visual observation of asbestos here on the dirt on site..so we could find some more," said DEP spokeswoman Rhonda Haag.

So far, 22 cubic feet of asbestos has been found.

If more 35 cubic feet is found, Posen, the construction company working the project could face fines.

Though the dirt removal was on hold, construction crews continued working on the Summerlin overpass.

The project is expected to be complete by April.
