There are two main types of natural aggregate: crushed stone and sand and gravel. Aggregate is used in building construction and public-works projects such as roads and highways, bridges, dams, water and sewage systems and tunnels. Sand and gravel are produced commercially in every state in the United States, and crushed stone is produced in 48 of the 50 states. Aggregate production accounts for about half of the nonfuel-mining volume in the United States.
