The state Department of Transportation is investigating a workers’ prank that involved a small explosion, an official said this week.
Paul Gray, the DOT’s local district engineer, said a couple of employees mixed toilet cleaner with aluminum in a plastic bottle at the Rowe maintenance building.
One employee has reportedly suffered a ringing in his ears since then, so the department has sent that employee to a specialist, Gray said.
“We haven’t received the physician’s statement yet,” he said.
