OREGON'S PAVED ROADS |
ARE BEING BOOSTED IN [
| PAPERS OVER COUNTRY
A story by C. B. Forbes, describ
ing Oregon roads and published in
Forbes Magazine, has been quoted
iu numerous papers of the country.
The following cuipping is taken
from The Express, Enfield, Ill.:
In five years Oregon has spent
$57,060,060 iu road building. How’s
that for a population of only 800,-
060! No other state in the union
probably comes anywhere near such
a per capita expenditure for good
roads. Other Pacific states also are
energetically constructing the very
finest paved righways. Oregon’s
roads have cost $30,000 a mile, ex-
elusive of bridges. The resuit is
that you can now drive hundreds
of miles north and south on roads
the equal of any that New York,
Chicago or any other large city can
boast. Also it will very shortly be
possible to motor clear through the
state of Oregou to the Idaho border
line, a distance equal to the total
length of England.
1 noticed, too, a great many sub
stantial roads in many parts of the
western half of the country. Goqd
roads always go hand ill hand with
a high state of civilization. If the
Romans needed good roads in their
day, how mueh more does this far-
flung continent need them today!
Next to necessary expenditures for
up to date sanitation no district
can invest a generous aincunt of
money more wisely than in con
structing first-class roads, now so
necessary for the expeditious trans
portation of products and so con
ducive to the development of de
sirable social intercourse, without
which we can never hope to have
our agricultural resources adequate
