AASHTO #1 Crushed Stone

Type 1 Aggregate


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.


Union Quarries offers type 1 aggregate in the Central Pennsylvania region.
