Material inventories for prospective sources of material for use in building roads and associated structures were prepared by Arizona for several counties including Maricopa County. The inventories provide information about pit locations, materials classification and type, and measures of some characteristics used to determine suitability for aggregate.

The digital data given in this release was published by the (ADOT, 1977) in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration. This is one of a series of material inventories prepared for Arizona’s counties by ADOT since compilation began in 1959.
