(By E. F, Ayres,, Highway Engineer,
. Oregon Agricultural College.)
" Oregon Agricultural College, Cor-
vallis. It has been said that one of
the saddest sights in Nature is af
forded by the man who gets "stalled"
In a mudhole with his load of pro
duce, and wears out his whip, his
temper, his vocabulary, his religion
and his team in a vain attempt to
get to market. And yet this same
gentleman will probably oppose any
suggestion that the road should be
improved on the plea that the cost
would be excessive. Overzealous
friends of the Good Roads move
ment are largely responsible for the
idea that no road can be called Im
proved without the use of some ex
pensive surfacing, and this concep
tion must be corrected before Ore
gon will fix her earth roads suffi
ciently, to sustain the traffic. As long
as this doctrine is confined to those
who openly oppose any attempt to
better our primary transportation
system, very little harm is done, but
when it is found to be the accepted
faith of many road supervisors, it
assumes serious proportions.
In the construction of the most ex
pensive pavement, not one ounce of
road metal can be spread until proper
drainage has been provided, or in
other words, until a first class earth
road has been built to sustain the
surfacing. If this work is essential
a rew days before the stone is an
plied, why not try it a few years
ahead and save time and money when
the increased traffic warrants the
larger expenditure. Many of our coun
try roads will need no surfacing for
many years if they are given a little
There are three rules which must
be remembered in the building of
any road, from the mountain trail to
the city street. 1st, get the water
off the road; 2nd, get the water out
trom under , the road; 3ra, get the
water away from the road. If these
rules are followed you will have a
pretty fair road in any country, un
less you happen to. be building
through a sandy country, in which
case all rules should be reversed.
To get the water off the road, it
is simply necessary to keep the ruts
well filled, and provide sufficient
crown to carry the water to the side
ditches. In the heavier soils of the
Willamette Valley a crown of 1 inch
to y2 inches to the foot will be am
pie. On very wide roads this can be
reduced slightly, but It is rarely ne
cessary to build a road over 30 feet
wide between ditch lines. On narrow
roads, such as are sometimes una.
voidable in the mountains, the dis
tance from top of crown to bottom of
ditch should be at least 12 inches
The crown should not be increased
in this case, the extra depth being
furnished at the ditch line.
Everyone knows that the grade of
a hill limits the load which can he
hauled over it, but few realize the
effect these excessive grades have on
maintenance and drainage. All grades
over 5 per cent should be reduced
if possible, for on steeper slopes the
water will be very apt to cut its
own channel .In the center of the
traveled way instead of going to
the catches. If the crown is increased
to a point where the water will shed
quickly, the road is dangerous for
traffic. The road will not rut badly
but the top layer of earth will be
very slippery, and a large crown will
be likely to slide wagons Into the
ditch. The old road builders took
care of the problem by building
tnanK-you-marms, or water breaks,
and while these had their use
one time, they should no longer be
tolerated In a civilized community.
If the same energy expended in the
construction of these abominations
Is used u reducing grades and crown
ing the road, there will be no further
use for their existence.
Not only must the steep grade be
avoided in highway construction, but
care must be taken that the road is
not too level. Water must have a
slope of at least 4 inches in 100 feet
to flow freely In the ditches, and
no road should be built with less
grade, but in such cases the dttch
must be given the , minimum slope,
and the water taken away at fre
quent intervals. The better plan is
to raise the road above the surround
ing country, and then build to the
minimum grade in even undulations
or about GOO feet.
It is a comparatively easy matter
to get the water oft the road, the
real trouble beginning when we try
to get the water out from under the
road. In this respect the road builder
in a sandy country has the advant
age, for he is never troubled with
either springs or seepage. The heav
ier soils will develop soft spots and
holes which seem to be bottomless,
even nftor the surface has been thor
oughly drained. The road drag fails
to remedy conditions, and all gravel,
stone, brush or other material dump
ed In the holes is soon lost.
It is very probable that this diffi
culty is caused by the underground
spring, and the first problem Is to
locate its source, remembering that
this is rarely found at the spot where
the trouble develops. When it has
been found, excavate a trench about
8 Inches wide and three feet deep to
some convenient outlet, lay a 4-inch
pipe in the bottom and backfill. The
ordinary farm tile is the most satis
factory for this class of work, but
care must be taken to prevent dirt
from filing the pipe when backfilling.
In both sldehill work and in heavy
cuts, soft spots are developed by
water seeping under the road. In
sldehills, the best remedy is to lay
4-inch pipe in the same manner as
specified for springs, placing the pipe
at the same depth at the inner edge
of the ditch. Through heavy cuts
where the water seeps under from
both sides, the tile may be laid in
the middle of the road, taking care
that it lays well below the ditch line,
In this case it is well to use a some
what larger tile, 6 inches being the
size commonly specified. The drains
must be carried to some convenient
outlet, and in no case should the
water be carried over 1000 ft.
It is not enough to get the water
off the road, it must be taken away
from the ditches or a large part of
it will soak back under the traveled
way. Culverts or outlet ditches must
be provided at least every 1000 feet,
and oftener whenever possible. The
outlet ditch can be used only "where
it is possible to turn the water away
on each side, some form of culvert
being essential whenever it is neces
sary to carry the water across the
The materials in most common use
for culverts include the wooden box,
corrugated iron, steel, cast Iron, con
crete and vitrified clay pipes; rein

boxes or arches, the masonry being
laid either dry. or in mortar. All but
one of these have their advantages,
the exception noted being the wooden
The timber box has but one thing
to recommend it, its first cost, and
when the repairs and renewals for a
few years are added, it is found to
be a very expensive luxury. It has
the facultiy of rotting and giving no
sign until some horse sticks his foot
through the weak place, and the first
Intimation the authorities have that
there is anything wrong is when the
indignant owner comes down on them
for damages. He usually gets what
he asks, a sum which would, build
many permanent culverts in the
first place. Nobody likes the wooden
box, but it is still used on account
of the penny wise policy of tEose
responsible for the appropriations
Where good stone is abundant, the
masonry culvert is probably the best
to build and the cheapest to main
tain, but in less fortunate districts
a choice must be made between the
other materials. . So many items en
ter into the decision that it is im
possible to recommend anv one metti
od or material without being familiar
with local conditions. The main con
sideration is to put in enough cul
verts, and have them of ample size.
They should be laid with a good fall,
not less than two per cent, and out
let ditJchea should be excavated
wherever necessary. The culvert must
be large enough to permit of easy
cleaning, as well as to carry away
the water of the most severe storms
No matter how carefully your
drainage system has been designed
and constructed, it will not give sat
isfactory service unless it is kept in
first class condition. The road drag
will preserve the crown of the road
and fill the ruts and depressions, but
the ditches and culverts need con
stant attention. It is well to go over
the road during' the first storm and
see how things are getting along. Do
not wait until the shower is over,
for one large stone in the ditch or
one clogged culvert may do a great
deal of harm, and a few cents worth
of work during the rain may save
the district many dollars. Special
care is necessary during the autumn
to keep the ditches and culverts free
from, leaves, and in winter to pre
vent them from being choked with
ice and snow.
