Prospect Family Appeals Decision in Bridge Blasting Case 

Catherine Pegram

A family in Prospect who says construction of the Penobscot Narrows Bridge damaged their home, took their case to the Maine Supreme Court today.Vera Dyer and her sons are appealing a lower court’s ruling.The Dyers say the blasting by Maine Drilling and Blasting left cracks in the basement and made existing ones in the basement and garage, worse.The house was next to the bridge construction site. A lower court judge previously ruled in favor of the company, saying there wasn’t enough evidence to prove the blasting caused the damage to the house.Dick Dyer says if the Supreme Court overturns that ruling, his family will push to have a jury decide the case. No word on when the high court could hand down its decision.
