GASTON -- Repairing a 400-foot section of Ind. 28 that is slowly sinking into a bog is expected to cost more than half a million dollars.

This news will come as no surprise to many residents of the Gaston area, which was once home to two swamps that were of nature-preseve quality before being mined.

During a recent meeting with local government representatives, Indiana Department of Transportation officials reported that a section of the highway east of Delaware County Road 600-W, near Wes-Del Middle and High schools, is "basically sinking away."
