There is no shortage of stone in Nashville, that's for sure...!

Which begs the question, where does it all go?

New Jersey?

Seriously, I know limestone is huge business in middle TN given our geology and there are many quarries and suppliers.     I just had 3 truckloads delivered for a gravel drive.   Companies like Vulcan Materials quarry their own.     It makes sense that gravel processors would buy excavation material from construction sites, as long as it were free of soil and other debris I guess.      I honestly don’t know how that works.    Hence my question.

Eakin Partners lands a major permit for Peabody Plaza valued at $24.95 million, that will allow for the construction of the nine-story building’s frame.

I don’t know how we all missed it, but a second tower crane is fully erected on site, further SE than the tall one nearest KVB.

When 840 was under construction, I asked this same question to a friend who was overseeing part of the project.  He said that the elevation of the highway is designed so that the stone they take from blasting through a hill is used to fill in a valley next to it.  They don't have to haul stone very far.

^ ^ ^ I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of the excavation around town is going to the airport expansion of the apron area in front of the terminal expansion.  It is a huge hole that needs to be filled.

There were two areas getting a lot of fill. One was on Hwy 12 at the top of the hill on the left before you get out of Davidson. Hundreds of truck loads of dirt and rock were hauled there and has been for years and as to what they are doing there I am clueless.

Also on up into Ashland City before the Wal Mart on the left hundreds more truckloads were brought in there. I think they have apartments planned there and have to raise the level about 10 fet above the flood stage.

Recently both sites have not been very active.

Another thing they are doing on some of these sites are crushing the stone as they take it out and probably selling to a gravel company. The crushed rock can also be used as agrigate in concrete.

^I walk by this hole a lot and I’m always amazed about how enormous it is. It’s a pretty impressive feat of civic engineering in itself.
