The specific weight of the open coal mining method in Kuzbass is constantly growing due to higher hazard and low profitability of the under-ground mining method. It is possible to reduce the cost of open-pit coal mining using overburden rock in constructing temporary pit roads. The purpose of the work is to justify the possibility of using overburden rock for the construction of temporary technological roads. To this end, we set the tasks to determine the rational granulometric composition of crushed rock, dependences of its unit weight, static elastic modulus, and ultimate shear resistance. This study justifies the most efficient granulometric composition of crushed rock based on theoretical studies of the optimal structure of granular materials, taking into account the probability theory of particle-particle packing, laboratory studies of the dependence of the unit weight and the static elastic modulus on the content of par-ticles of different sizes, and also the calculation of ultimate shear resistance of crushed rocks. As a result of the conducted studies, it has been established that the optimal granulometric composition of crushed rock, which at the same time ensures high values of unit weight, static elastic modulus and ultimate shear re-sistance, is achieved when the content of particles larger than half of the maximum is 40 to 55% and increases integrally with decreasing of the average particle diameter.
