White Rock Supplying Airport With Runway Base Rock

White Rock Supplying Airport With Runway Base Rock
(4th Quarter 2001)

It takes a lot of limerock base material to build a 12,000-foot airport runway. But for White Rock Quarries, it’s all in a day’s — or in this case, night’s — work.

Make that many nights’ work. WRQ has established a night-shift sales team to supply material for a new, full-length runway at Miami International Airport. It is the largest base-rock supply contract in White Rock’s history.

The general contractor is Gilbert Southern Corp., a subsidiary of top-ten ranked contractor Peter Kiewit Sons’ Inc. Gilbert chose White Rock for its ability to consistently provide the high volume of DOT-certified base material needed on the project.
