IS NEW ROAD IDEA
Roads as Good, at Half
Price, Said to Result.
That roads should bt paid for by
tha peopl who us them and not
posterity; and that it is cheaper to
pay (or roads now thsn in tha future,
are the guiding ideas In the scheme
now being tried in San Diego County,
This county baa agreed, through Ita
board of supervisors, to construct ten
miles of highway, 20 feet wide, paved
with concrete, under the Mpay-aa-you
pave" plan. Thirty miles sre to be
built. Past experiments in paved
highway construction in this county
have shown that such roads can be
built c.i a cash basis for $26,000 a
mile, as compared with (51,276 a mile
ultimate rot under the forty-year, 6
per cent, bond issue plan usually
adopted lor road building financing in
the Wes'.ern States, California in
el'ided. The plan waa invented after three
yearn stud) of road building by
Goorpe Kejton, treasurer of the coun
ty. bince ita adoption, at the first of
the year, one road, the Poway Grade
Highway, haa been completed under
it. aiid the plan found to work out
exactly as predicted.
T he (.jan it based on the conclusion
that it Is better business to increase
the tax rate lor the purpose of obtain
ing lunar for highway building than
to Increase the rate of Interest on a
paving bond issue, since the ultimate
coal of the improvement under the in
cria.ed tax rate will be approximate
ly tue-haif of that under the bond
is-ue. This tax rate alio takes care
of the maintenance of the highways
when they are paved; the bond issue
does not do this. The Heston plan
releases future generations from the
burden of paying for bonds the re
ceipts from which were used for
building rusds which by the time
the bonds are paid have been worn
cut and rebuilt, not once, but in ail
probabiiiy two or three times.
How National High
ways Differ from
Federal Aid Roads
At the end of one hundred end for
ty years of national existence we
have barely 10 per oent of our road
mileage. Evidently there has been
something radically wrong with our
system of attacking the road problem.
Years ago all road work was consid'
ered as a matter of purely local con
cern. Furthermore, it was then
thought that almoat anyone had
knowledge enough to build such a
common thing as a road, and it was
due to these two ideas that the old
fashioned form of statutory labor on
road work was so long in vogue, and
even yet remains in a few aeattered
portions of the country.
But gradually there was develop
ment: First, from local roada to coun
ty roads, and more recently, to State
highways. Now we have progreasad
to still another stage, and the people
are now firmly demanding that the
National Government take a hand in
solving our rosd problem. As the
result of this demand haa grown up
two schools of thought as to how th.e
National Government should go about
the work. These two schools of
thought were represented, first, . by
National Highways; and second, by
National Highways should mean
trunk-line highways built, owned,
maintained and controlled by the Na
tional Government, without any con
nections, whatever with the civil sub
divisions; nsmely, States, counties,
townships, and towns. The money
used in constructing these roada
should corns solely from the National
Treasury, and the work ahould be
done entirely under the direction of
engineers and commissioners employ
ed by the National Government.
Federal Aid in road building may
take a variety of forms, but the gen
eral Idea is that the National Govern
ment should donate money to the var
ioua States, eounties, or townships to
be used by them for the construction
of roads, as in the Federal Aid laws
new in effect. Federal authorities
have some general kind of supervision
over the construction of the roads,
but the real authority is in the hands
of the local communities, while half
the money comes from the Govern
ment. The National Government haa the"
legal right to construct National
Highways, because road improvement
ia a National concern. Railroads have
long been regulated by the Govern
ment under the Interstate Commerce
Commission; and roads, being alao a
mcana of communication, are in a pre
cisely slmitsr class.
If we adopt a Nation-wide system
of National Highways we will speed
ily see our country covered with a
net-work of good roada.
These roads will necessarily have
a uniform excellence of construction
and maintenance, having, as they will,
the. highest highwsy engineering tal
ent obtainable to direct and carry out
this work, which is possible only in
out great Government projects. Thus
the Government will lesd the way and
make an example for all to follow
in the attainment of Good Roads everywhere.
