Last updated on Thursday, April 24, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS) - A company that agreed in December to pay $8 million to settle fraud claims has won a state contract to pave the first section of the Interstate 69 extension to Evansville.

Gohmann Asphalt and Construction of Clarksville was awarded a $25 million contract this month to build a 1.8-mile section of the highway from Interstate 64 near Evansville to IN-68.

The settlement in December followed claims that the company switched road core samples to hide inadequate work.
