Construction Continues in Northampton Amidst Toxic Soil Probe

Construction of two car dealerships in Northampton continues while possible toxic soil contamination is investigated.  OSHA and the DEP showed up at the former Kollmorgen site on King Street last week to take soil samples.  They were called after workers smelled sickening fumes.  A stop-work order has not been issued, and on Wednesday construction appeared to be on-going.  The TommyCar Auto Group bought the five-acre parcel last year for nearly $2 million.
