Andrews Files Lawsuit Against Companies Who Constructed Reliever Route

ANDREWS- Almost exactly one year ago the Andrews Truck Reliever Route opened. However, the city was forced to shut it down after asphalt bleeding and now the town is taking action.

We got our hands on the 59 page lawsuit that Andrews filed against Delhur Industries, The Insurance Company of the State of  Pennsylvania, and Wagner and Company. All of which were involved in the construction of the route.

In March of 2012, the city selected Delhur to construct the route. Delhur brought on Wagner and Company as a Subcontractor. The road opened in October of last year.

According to the lawsuit, Delhur and Wagner and Company experienced problems while originally laying the asphalt. Equipment used caused the asphalt to be "tracked up" which caused potholes. Efforts were taken to fix the road, however it is believed that those problems were never fixed.  

The document later goes on to state that when the temperatures starting rising in the spring, the asphalt began to come up in strips and chunks. That forced the city to close it down in June.

The lawsuit says the City Manager, Glen Hackler, told Delhur about the problems and made a request for repair but to date the city has not heard back from Delhur.

The route was a $5,000,000 and was built to relieve truck traffic in town. Andrews is suing for $1,000,000 or more including damages, penalties, costs, pre judgement interest and attorney fees... 

We reached out to Delhur and the attorney representing the city of Andrews, but never heard back.
