Bloom Township Highway Commissioner Joseph Stanfa explained that the old facility is located on the site of an old Nicor gas plant. Toxins had leaked into the ground, and an environmental clean-up effort has been commissioned by Nicor and ComEd. Funds for the clean-up are covering the cost of the new Highway Commission building.
