Homewood approves expansion of quarry blasting near Halsted

The Homewood village board has approved a special use permit for Hanson Material Service to expand its mining facility at the Thornton Quarry. Hanson listed the property at 17401 Halsted Street as vacant since a gas station on the site closed about 25 years. Homewood officials said Hanson intends to begin blasting in the new area in 2018.
