Engineer and landowner say quarry won't cause a quandry

A rock quarry that will process the granite and other minerals they mine on site is proposed for a location off of Fishing Creek Church Road. The news of the building of the quarry has caused some comment among members in the community who are concerned about noise and traffic from the rock quarry and related activities and what proposed blasting to create the quarry would do to nearby historic structures.

Project engineer Jerry Meade and landowner John Black sat down with The N&R recently to address those concerns about the proposed Fishing Creek Rock Quarry.
