LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP): A huge pile of dirt is standing in the way of a new jet engine plant in Lafayette.
The Journal & Courier reports that the 10-foot-deep pile covers an area of about a half-dozen football fields.
The dirt is left over from previous construction near the site at the industrial park where GE Aviation intends to build a 225,000-square-foot plant. GE Aviation announced in March it plans to assemble an engine developed by CFM International, a joint company of GE and Snecma of France, at the site.
