at Reasonable Cost
In last week’s issue the Express
made mention of the excellent
roads being built in this county
by the county court under thg
supervision of A. B. Todd of this
city. At that time the Express
did not have the cost figures, but
the editor of the Hillsboro Inde
pendent furnishes them, as fol
"Compilation of the cost of re
surfacing the Base Line road be
tween Cornelius and Forest Grove
gives reason for the belief that a
solution of the Washington county
road problem has been found and
th2t 9 surface that will withstand
heavy automobile traffic can be
laid at a cost which can be met.
The stretch in question was com
pleted last week and work begun
on the Hillsboro end. Judge
Reasoner has kept a close tabula
tion on all expense of the work
and announces that the cost has
been 52.2 cents per lineal foot or
31 Vs cents per square yard. The
repair of the road consisted of re
surfacing, the macadam b e i n g
first torn up with a spiked roller.
It was then rolled smooth and
coated with hot oil and this cov
ered wiih i dressing of screenings.
An experimental stretch of this
road laid in Forest Grove a year
ago has resulted in a fine pave
ment which as yet shows no wear.

Thatcher quarry, a distance of
about nine miles, there being

per yard the cost of crushing was
