Coming Your Way? 1123 trips from these trucks each day?
Round 2 of the public hearings for Grupo Cementos de Chicahuahua's expansion to a 24-hour-a-day operation will kick off Wednesday evening August 5 at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center at 6 p.m. I've had a little help reviewing the permit application and now realize that, if the permit was granted, it would allow the on-site equipment to process 1170 tons of cement/hr. That could allow 1123 truck trips each day, if each truck had a 25-ton capacity. The company has said that, given current market conditions, they probably wouldn't be doing this, but who knows what will happen a few years from now.
