Aug. 1, 2016 – Sometimes you have to take it right to the community. Lafarge North America, seeking to open a new quarry in Lockport, N.Y., is offering the community a chance to tour its existing quarry.
The open house is set from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, rain or shine, at the quarry at 400 Hinman Road. It’s free, and no appointments are needed. Nice press on the open house in the Buffalo News.
"Visitors will be taken by bus to view the blasting sites and heavy machinery used to turn the Lockport dolomite stone into aggregate used in paving asphalt, as well as other grades of stone used for everything from ready-mix concrete to filling driveways," the article states. Perry Galdenzi, Lafarge project manager, told the paper it is the first open house Lafarge has held in about 10 years. Kudos to Lafarge for reaching out locally.
