Lafarge receives planning approval for expansion in Lockport, New York
The Planning Board in Lockport, New York has recommended the Common Council approve a one-year special use permit that would allow Lafarge North America to expand its Redlands Quarry, the Lockport Union-Sun & Journal reports.
Lafarge wants to mine 9.1 acres of a 15-acre parcel it purchased about six years ago. The area is near a 162-foot-wide strip of the quarry that Lafarge mined in December 2012.
Company officials say the expansion is necessary for the quarry to continue operations for the next three to five years.
