The article is concerned about the evaluation of aggregate microtexture. It is very important parameter from the traffic safety point of view and is described as a configuration of small irregularities on the aggregate surface. The new evaluating approach of aggregate microtexture based on the 3-D method is described in this article. 3-D model of surface of aggregate particle was generated from the measurements by microscope method. New program was developed for quantification of aggregate

Usability of this method was tested on samples of two coarse aggregate fraction taken from the eleven different quarries in Slovakia. The results of this evaluation have shown a high variability of values of volumetric characteristics between the fractions of aggregate and also between quarries.
