AGGREGATES BUILD OUR COMMUNITIES

Construction aggregates form the underpinnings of our cities, towns and transportation networks. Thousands of years ago, civilizations built entire cities with stone, sand and gravel, and many of these ancient structures exist today.

 

Our construction aggregates are used in a number of ways.

 

• As a base material underneath highways, walkways, airport runways, parking lots and railroads.

 

• To aid in water filtration, purification and erosion control.

 

• As a raw material used in combination with other resources to construct many of the items we rely on to sustain our quality of life. These include:

 

 — Houses and apartments

 

 — Roads, bridges and parking lots

 

 — Schools and hospitals

 

 — Commercial buildings and retail spaces

 

 — Sewer systems

 

 — Airports and runways

 

In 2012, we participated in many noteworthy projects in the communities in which we do business. In addition to the Thomas Road Improvement Program in Bakersfield, CA, other key projects in which we participated in 2012 included:
