    Van Metre has begun blasting Section 23 (along Truro Parish near Belmont Ridge Road). Right now the blasting is anticipated to take about 30 days. Typically the blasts take place every few days. This is dependent on how much rock we run into, the weather, etc. The blaster tries to schedule the blasts in the afternoon between 2 and 3 o’clock. If there is weather moving in the area, they try to move the blast time up in the day.

    Due to the formation of the rock ridges – some homes that are located along the same ridge do feel the blasts more intensely than others.

    Questions? .Please contact Van Metre at 703-348-5824

    Along Demott where the George Mason campus was originally going. It abuts the Greenway all the way down to the Nature Preserve.

    The blasting will be along the new housing development? Silver and Demott?
