Making of Roads Now
Problem for Experts
Making a modern highway Involves
so many problems that expert engi
neering, financing and construrction
all play their part. No longer will a
mere cutting down of trees and rough
grading a road bed serve the public.
Before a modern highway can be
properly and economically built, the
taxpayers must ask, and the experts
answer, a number of very pertinent
It must be determined what the
highway can, and aecand what it
should, cost. Next, and intimately
concerned with the first, is the prob
lem of what sum yearly can, and what
sum should, be spent for maintenance.
The better the road in the beginning,
the less the necessary maintenance,
and vice versa.
If the road has several different
geographic sections, what types of
roads should be built for these? Road
built through swamp areas need one
type of foundation, that built on
rocky bills, another; some roads re
quire expensive drainage foundations,
others do not.
What is the maximum traffic to be
provided for? Thia means planning
for the road five, ten, twenty-five
years hence, as welt as tomorrow.
Broadway, New York, and Washing
ton Street, Boston, were planned for
small traffic. Their narrowness causes
millions loss yearly.
How much shall the taxpayer pay
for the road and how much the users?
What proportion of upkeep shall fall
on the makers of the road and what
on the horses, wagons, automobiles
and trucks? Tax too heavily, and the
road isn't used; tax too lightly, and
the taxpayer sufiers.
What shall be the location? How
much shall be put into reducing grade
and curve, and how much into width
and length? Not knowing the an
swers, no citizen can vote intelligent
ly upon road taxes or bonds.
