STAMFORD - About two dozen workers at the DeYulio Sausage Company in Stamford were laid off after the business was evicted yesterday.

The owner, Nick DeYulio, says he learned several months ago that his business, located on Myrtle Avenue, would have to move to make way for a four-lane highway known as the Urban Transitway.

DeYulio says he was left with no choice but to lay off his employees. He says he found a new location in Bridgeport, but it won't be ready until March.

The DeYulio Sausage Company has been in business for 100 years.
