Vulcan planning to expand Georgia quarry

By |  August 7, 2013

Vulcan Materials Co. is proposing a 279-acre expansion of its quarry in Adairsville, Ga., according to the Rome News-Tribune. About half of the 279 acres would be potentially mined.

Vulcan currently owns or leases 341 acres at the existing quarry, although only 167 acres is mineable. The county in which the quarry sits filed a Development of Regional Impact (DRI) document in support of proposed expansion. DRIs must be submitted, a Northwest Georgia Regional Commission planner told the newspaper, for existing quarries that expand by at least 50 percent.
