Concrete Plants and Traffic Congestion

Concrete batch plants use trucks to move product from the plant to its intended delivery point and to deliver raw materials (aggregates) to the plant. On average, a ready-mix concrete batch plant employs 10-20 trucks that make a total of 75 trips per day combined.

Regulation of Concrete Plants in Texas
