Weighty way to lose big bucks

December 1, 2010

    What weighs 11,000 tons and costs $750,000?
    According to comments made at Monday's session of the Adams County Commissioners by Commissioner Doug Bauman, that refers to a mistake made by the Brooks Construction company of Fort Wayne and/or its asphalt supplier before resurfacing State Rd. 116 west of Geneva this year.
    Bauman, who lives on that stretch of highway, said he was told the asphalt was not properly made and had to be removed and replaced.
    He said 11,000 tons of asphalt was hauled away and the error cost $750,000 to correct.
