584,000 tons per year of "batch" hot mix asphalt (HMA) but because of the old plant equipment, the plant is currently only capable of producing a maximum of approximately 200,000 tons per year of H MA. The proposed project would increase the production capacity of the plant from approximately 200,000 to 700,000 tons per year of HMA.
