What's the road like from Delta to the quarry?
The last twenty miles of gravel road to the U-DIG Quarry is maintained with graders by the county. Most of the time, the road is in excellent condition. At times, between gradings, the road will develop some washboard-type bumps in a few locations. The road is well-graveled. Even with extensive amounts of rain, the road will not get muddy. Having a good spare tire, jack, and lug wrench is always a good idea when traveling on a gravel road.
