The two-year tunnel project at Shelly’s limestone quarry in Ostrander, OH has successfully opened. The tunnel provides a safe access way for Shelly’s haul trucks transporting aggregates to its processing plant. Shelly representatives collaborated with local government officials and regulatory departments on every step of the process.
On Friday, June 15, Shelly hosted a small ceremony to recognize the tunnel and show appreciation for everyone’s efforts. There were around 30 people in attendance including local county officials and community members. In addition there was representation from Ohio Department of Transportation, Ohio Department of Natural Resources and Ohio Aggregates and Industrial Minerals Association.
“Our team at The Shelly Company is committed to providing superior quality aggregate while maintaining community partnership,” said Shelly Aggregates Operations Manager, Mike Matoszkia. “This tunnel project is one more example of that commitment.”
The Shelly Company has been a longtime member of the Ostrander community and continues to support the community. It hosts several school visits at its quarry and community events at its wildlife habitat site. More information can be found under our community section on
