NorthGate Crushes 200 Tons an Hour on DFW Project

November 20, 2012

NorthGate Constructors' concrete-crushing plants for the $1 billion DFW Connector project are crushing some 200 tons of material per hour to reduce waste and dust, and contribute to the new road bed.

NorthGate's task is to reduce debris to a blend of dirt, gravel and chunks of rock no larger than two inches diameter, according to the Forth Worth Star-Telegram.

All contractors working on Texas DOT projects, including the Connector, must recycle at least part of what they take out as the work progresses, said spokeswoman Veronica Beyer.
