ROAD DEVELOPMENT LEAPS FORWARD
Twenty years ago the good rock road for wagon and
horse was considered the limit of improvement for this
method of transportation. Today the bare rock road is

Pavements have been laid on tens of thousands of
miles of highways. Where heavy state highways are not
warranted, old gravel and macadam road beds are being
surfaced with a two or three inch water proof coating of
asphaltic concrete. This utilizes the well compacted old
road as a base for an economical and efficient method of
Where even this second type is not warranted, road
oil is today being placed on thousands of miles of country
roads. It has been found that this method of treatment
again preserves the road base by preventing the blowing
away in dust of tons of road surfacing, which, in addition
to damaging the road, buries the neighboring countryside
in a coating of dirt which runs thousands of dollars worth
And so the road improvements continue. Wider
highways are superseding the narrower pavements and
dust proof highways are superseding the dust nuisances of
a few years ago.
If this progress in road building is to be continued,
the funds for carrying on this work also must be contin
ued. A large part of the total sum spent for roads is
raised by automobile license fees. While the writer has
long maintained that the only equitable system of taxing
the auto was on the gasoline, good roads enthusiasts are
urged to be sure that such a provision is made before the
revenue for construction is wiped out by a reduction in
the license fee.
