Railroad Ballast

Railroad ballast is one of the most demanding applications for crushed stone.

Railroad ballast serves as a bed for railroad tracks and provides track stability, drainage, and support of significant loads carried by railcars. In addition, it deters the growth of vegetation and allows for track maintenance to be performed more easily. Ballast is produced from natural deposits of granite, trap rock, quartzite, dolomite or limestone.

Vulcan produces ballast and other track materials for shipment to customers from coast to coast, and has a dedicated Ballast Sales Team that can help you with your ballast needs from any of our facilities.
