New quarry approved at Rock Lake


ST. JOHN – Whitman County Commissioners initiated Monday a new rock-crushing project at Glorfield Quarry, off of Rock Lake Road northwest of St. John. The $500,000 for 60,000 tons of rock will go to gravel roads, paid for by the road levy lid lift passed by voters last November. Commissioners also approved a call for bids to be published.

The county has already spent $670,000 this year so far in road gravel. Previously, an annual total would be about $650,000, plus internal costs.

The almost-doubling of money spent on gravel this year was the intention of the lid lift.
