Filer, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Gordon Paving has been busy at work contributing towards the demanding Chobani construction project.
The company has been transporting material from the crystal springs pit in Filer and many of the trafficking trucks use the current route on 2000 East, that has been in used since the pit has been in existence.
Travis Brewer from the Filer Highway Districts said, "If they hauled 15-loads a day out of that pit that was a large amount. Their excess traffic they're running was in 24-hour increments and was a truck every five minutes, so there was a large amount of truck traffic, high weights and high speeds that caused all the damage."
According to brewer currently the filer highway district is consuming all cost to repair the road.
Travis Brewer from the Filer Highway Districts said, "If they would help us right now currently our estimation right now with the cost we have to rebuild it to make is safe for vehicular traffic is $97,000 to completely rebuild the road from start to finish from the damage that has been done would cast between three and three and half million dollars.”
Gordon Paving says they are just keeping up with Chobani's demand.
Brian Hansen of Gordon Paving said, "Here in about 45-days everything will go back to normal, will have most of the product in. Because it has been at times going 24-hours a day and it is a lot of trucks. The truck route will calm down a bit, but we fill for the citizens who live around the truck routes at one point we had over 85-trucks on a haul, hauling to our various travel its.”
But who will be paying for the damage road is still to be determined.
