LINKED: Cavanagh Construction eyes 111-acre expansion of west Ottawa quarry

From the Ottawa Business Journal:

A local construction firm is resurrecting plans to open a new quarry off Highway 7, west of Stittsville, to excavate aggregate materials used in road construction and building site preparations.

Thomas Cavanagh Construction has filed a rezoning application for its property at 1156 Jinkinson Rd. It’s adjacent to the company’s existing Henderson Quarry, approximately 30 kilometres southwest of Parliament Hill and 10 kilometres east of Carleton Place.

Planning documents say the proposed extraction area will be approximately 111 acres, with no limit on the amount of aggregate material that can be removed each year.
