BUILDING OF ROADS
Nation, State and Locality
'? ut ? public road-building policy
requiring road classification, according
to function as well as responsibility
for construction and
marntenance, is necessary in order
?o carry on successfully a good
- -"I* program in this country, is
the ^rist of a treatise issued recently
by the Nebraska Department of
Public Works, on "How to Get
Good Roads." The classification pol' >.
the Nebraska officials point out,
_lj.As been found upon adoption
abroad to be a highly successful one
for I ifhwar improvement.
Tuat which has secured roads
'?v*-r?eas. says the bulletin, should
'-? or# them here. First: There is
the "wntry road. Its primary func

' uia its function is vital?linking
'arm and market?its use is main!v
local. The county, therefore,
should assume responsibility for It.
It should be built and cared for by
county funds. Exception should tfe
made of certain roads in the
connttaa whose function places them
in another class?that of State or
Sacond: There is the State high,
way. the aggregate of which constitutes
the State highway system.
These are the roads which, while
serving local needs in the counties,
have for their primary function
highway service to the State as a
whole. The system is usually
planned to connect the county seats
and all these and the various sections
of the State with the State
capital. The State therefore should
assume responsibility for these
roads. They should be built and
^ared for through State taxation.
Exception should be made of certain
roads in the States whose
function places them in a third
class that of national roads.
Third: There is the national
highway, the asrrrepate of which
will constitute the system of national
highways. These are the
roads which, while serving county
needs. State neeos and Interstate
needs, have for their primary function
highway service to the country
as a whole.
