Asphalt crushing plant proposed for Rockville

M. Luis Products Company has proposed constructing and operating a reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) crushing and screening plant at 14900 Old Dover Road in Rockville. The Maryland Department of the Environment, Air and Radiation Management Administration (ARMA) has completed a review of the company's application, and is tentatively set to approve it.

But first, ARMA is hosting a public hearing to get community feedback on the proposed plant. The plant will crush 220 tons of reclaimed asphalt per hour, and be powered by two diesel engines. A public hearing will be held on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 at 6:30 PM, at the County Council Office Building, at 100 Maryland Avenue in Rockville, in the 7th floor Hearing Room. You will be able to speak at the hearing.

The closest homes to the plant are on Moore Drive - a fair distance away, but the ARMA announcement does not state the decibel level of the crushing machinery. You can read the M. Luis application, and ARMA's report, at the Rockville Memorial Library at 21 Maryland Avenue, Suite 310. Ask for "Docket #02-17."

  1. I'm not sure that Rockville residents want this in our city (carcinogenic airborne pollutants)... The one good thing about this is that it gives F.O. Day some competition, in light of the fact that F.O. Day has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to developer friendly politicians (Leventhal, etc.) over the years in Montgomery County's corrupt "pay-to-play" environment.

  2. "I'm not sure that Rockville residents want this in our city"???

    but the fools will welcome as many illegal aliens as the city can hold!

  3. There is nothing good about the construction and operation of this plant so close to Lincoln Park and East Rockville residential areas. How is this plant related to illegal aliens?

  4. This plant will greatly diminish our air quality. It's right next door to Rock Creek, Lake Needwood, and Lake Bernard Frank. Why would they permit this in such a densely populated area??

    1. Heavy donations to political campaigns by M. Luis and the developers, who need asphalt products. It's all pay-to-play in Montgomery County. Why did George Leventhal, who is running for County Executive, take $1,000 from M. Luis during this election cycle??? I guess he wants money more than clean air.

    2. Looks like Leventhal doesn't care about MoCo kids getting cancer, so long as he can line his pockets.

    3. Reminds me of the time Leventhal's taxpayer-funded health board(!) that was supposed to teach kids about "healthy eating" gave them coupons for liquid candy drinks at Starbucks and fat and salt-laden Chipotle burritos.
