AASHTO #1



AASHTO #1 is a large grade of crushed stone that is best suited for larger construction projects. It is a clean material that will not compact.

What Is #1 Crushed Stone?

 

Crushed stone is a construction aggregate with many applications. The most common types of rock used in crushed stone production are limestone, granite, quartzite, washed gravel, argillite and traprock. These rocks are mined and then crushed into specific sizes for a wide array of practical uses.

 

Crushed stone is a sustainable resource because it can be produced using nearly any kind of hard rock. At Union Quarries, we use Pennsylvania’s abundant limestone to create AASHTO #1 and other grades of crushed stone.

 

Varying grades of crushed stone are essential for many landscaping and construction projects, from decorative lining for residential ponds to stormwater diversion pits.

 

Differing grades of crushed stone are categorized based on the size of the pieces generated by the crushing process. #1 crushed stone is the largest grade.

AASHTO #1 Stone Size

 

AASHTO #1 is the largest crushed stone variety offered by Union Quarries. This material features a 2 to 4-inch top size. 

 

While it is too bulky to be effectively used for surfacing, this grade of crushed stone is an excellent material for subgrade stabilization.

As the largest crushed stone grade available, AASHTO #1 is naturally suited for larger jobs. Here are some common commercial and residential applications for materials of this grade:
