A 30-day public comment period for a proposed expansion of the Parkdale Quarry west of Cañon City began on July 31.

The evaluation process results from an application from Martin Marietta Materials Inc. to renew a 10-year contract on 700 acres of Bureau of Land Management land. An expansion would give access to 400 million net tons of aggregate, BLM said in a release. The aggregate is used to make asphalt and concrete to accommodate development in Colorado and Kansas.

Public comments will guide the Environmental Impact Statement. Send comments through the BLM site or mail to Parkdale Quarry Expansion Comments, 3028 E. Main St., Cañon City, CO 81212.
