Work has blasted off at the Bluhawk Apartments located in south Overland Park, Kansas. Mass blasting is taking place to help clear the limestone rock that is below the surface topsoil, in some places only inches below. Haupt Construction is performing the blasting with three surface drill rigs. The explosives are stored off-site increasing safety.
The large chunks of rock that are broken up by the blasting are processed through a rock crusher and will be recycled as gravel filler for use throughout the entire Bluhawk Apartment site.
