The Oregon Department of Transportation maintains quarries as part of a statewide material source network. ODOT uses these materials in construction, maintenance, and emergency repair projects. Excess materials are stockpiled for future use or reclamation.
The process of excavating rock from material sources often requires blasting in the quarry. The potential damage from ground vibration, air blast and flying debris is a major consideration when planning excavation activities. ODOT and its contractors make every effort to minimize potential impacts on neighboring properties from this type of work.
A variety of seed mixes are used to help shorten soil stabilization and long-term reclamation. These mixes often include native species and mixtures that are beneficial to elk/deer winter ranges and sage grouse.
