Corrado American provided earthwork services for the expansion of the Belvedere Mine at York Building Products in Northeast, Maryland. Our services included clearing and mass grading for a 1-mile long conveyor system connecting the aggregate mine to the newly added aggregate crushing and screening plant. Additionally, CA provided mass grading and drainage improvements for the aggregate crushing and screening plant, new entranceway, and new asphalt plant.
Over 100,000 tons of stone were placed, over 185,000 CY of earthwork were moved and 2,600 tons of asphalt were placed.
Some key challenges were designing and constructing a roadway across an existing wash pond and improving onsite drainage as grading occurred in an active mine. Corrado American implemented a combination of geotextiles and low ground pressure techniques to construct the road.
