Lafarge NA to widen protection zone for homes around Lockport quarry

Lafarge North America will include around 30 more homes in a protection zone around its new stone quarry on Hinman Road in Lockport, says Buffalo News. The quarry is expected to open in 2019.

Supervisor Mark Crocker, says the town and Lafarge will expand the zone in which the company will compensate homeowners for loses caused by blasting and other quarry operations as well as falling home prices.

The company has promised to keep a $500,000 fund to cover home losses, Crocker adds.

According to the report, “The protection zone, originally a 1,000-foot radius around the quarry, now covers all homes on Hinman and Murphy roads, and on the east side of Campbell Boulevard between Hinman and Murphy.”
