Duarte city officials have said they will not continue challenging an environmental review of Vulcan Materials’ mining expansion project in near Azusa, the Pasadena Star-News reported .
Duarte has spent nearly $600,000 in fighting the expansion project.
Duarte’s opposition to the project has been ongoing since Vulcan Materials first proposed moving its mining operation in 2009 .

One of Duarte’s major claims in the lawsuit was that the Azusa Rock Quarry‘s mining plan had a faulty environmental report, which the courts rejected.
