$12M award over town’s truck traffic is affirmed

A truck from the Martin Marietta quarry moves up Second Avenue in Greenwood, Mo., in March 2008. The Missouri Court of Appeals Western District has affirmed Greenwood's $12 million jury award on claims that trucks from the quarry damaged its streets. A Jackson County jury found in favor of the city of Greenwood last year. The city, located south of Lee's Summit near the Cass County line, had sued Martin Marietta Materials and Hunt Martin Materials because the companies drove heavy trucks carrying crushed rock up city streets to reach a local highway.
