GARY - A 30-day public comment period with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is now underway on the proposed cleanup plan for the Cline Avenue Ditch Site in Gary.

The site, located near the northeast corner Gary Avenue and Cline Avenue (Indiana Route 912), has been impacted by oil entering the ditch and ultimately discharging into the Grand Calumet River.

Kevin Comerford continues his conversation with Terry Velligan - General Manager of Operations and Laura Weber - Communications Specialist for Cline Ave LLC., about the plans for the Cline Avenue bridge.

In part two of this three-part segment on Cline Avenue bridge, Kevin talks with Laura and Terry about an expected completion date as well as their decision to use local contractors and local suppliers to complete the Cline Avenue bridge project.

GARY, Ind. (AP) — An industrial lubricant spill has shut down a ramp to an interstate in northwestern Indiana.

Wednesday's spill came from a truck hauling the pig-fat-based material on the southbound ramp from Cline Avenue to eastbound Interstate 80/94 in the Gary area.

The Times reports the ramp is closed for cleanup, which could take as long as a week.
