Document Description
Granite Construction Company (Granite) is requesting a Surface Mining Permit (SMP) for the 311-acre Liberty Quarry site located in southwestern Riverside County. Granite proposes to develop and reclaim a new hard rock granite quarry to meet the requirements of Riverside County Ordinance No. 555. The quarry will be excavated in three phases to form a basin or bowl within the vacant hills. The quarry footprint and plant site will ultimately total approximately 155 acres of a 311-acre site. The project will be accessible from the I-15 Rainbow Valley Blvd. exit in San Diego County. Alternatively, the access road to the site may traverse the parcel of land to the south of the site, beginning at Caltrans ROW and heading south and then north at a grade of 6 to 8%. The length of this road would be roughly 7,000 ft. long. Both alternative access roads will be assessed in the EIR.
