Vulcan Seeks to Expand Georgia Quarry

Vulcan Materials Co.’s quarry in Flowery Branch, Ga., is seeking to grow by nearly 30 acres. The company wants to add property off Friendship and Hog Mountain roads, which surround the quarry at 4195 Friendship Road, along with Blackjack Road.

Two parcels being leased to residents will remain occupied, while remaining parcels are vacant, according to city documents, said The Times. The “proposed use is for aggregate mining and associated production of asphalt and concrete, more specifically, storage.” 

The improvements will extend the quarry’s operational life and create a sustainable buffer between the operations and community, Vulcan said. Specifically, the company is seeking annexation of the properties and rezoning from agricultural to a manufacturing category with a conditional use permit to operate a quarry.
