Item 7.01.     Regulation FD Disclosure.

On June 10, 2009, the Company issued a press release in which it announced its intention to offer 11.5 million shares of its common stock to the public and to reduce its future quarterly dividend to $0.25 per share beginning in the third quarter of 2009.  A press release detailing the particulars of the offering is attached as an exhibit to this Form 8-K.  

Additionally, in a presentation to investors, management of Vulcan made the following comments:

Regarding our outlook for 2010, we anticipate year-over-year growth in aggregates volumes, including the stimulus, of approximately 15 percent.  During 2010, when volumes begin to recover, we expect aggregates pricing to improve 6 to 7 percent.  

We believe that the combination of continued federal stimulus spending in 2010, 2011 and 2012, along with renewal of the multi-year federal highway bill, some recovery for housing in 2011, and some late-cycle recovery in non-residential construction, should translate into recovery and growth in aggregates volumes through 2013.  

New highway spending as a result of federal stimulus legislation is expected to contribute to earnings growth at Vulcan from the second half of 2009 through 2012.  During this period, the Company anticipates aggregates shipments from the stimulus plan of 35 to 45 million tons, asphalt shipments of 3 to 4 million tons, and concrete shipments of 250 to 300 thousand cubic yards.  Some 45 to 65 percent of these shipments are expected to occur by the end of 2010.
