Parks Canada Agency Highway Operations Unit Marmot Pit Expansion-Winter Abrasives

Parks Canada Agency is proposing to expand the current aggregate quarry, Marmot Pit, by 1.1 ha to the north of its current extent. Additional aggregate is needed to supply the Jasper Field Unit and Highway Operations Unit with aggregate for winter abrasives and routine road maintenance. The proposed expansion would satisfy needs for the next six years. Historically, such requirements have been met by extracting and processing aggregate at Marmot Pit.
