Department, Dlsousses Different
Kinds of Construction of Roads,
Their Cost, the Cost ef Mainten
ance and Durability Nothing of
More Universal Interest Than the
Representative Shackelford of Mis
souri, an ardent advocate of good
roads and an enthusiast, in his bill re
cently passed by the lower house ot
congress, followed the basic principle
which underlies all highway construc
tion, that of common Interests the
Interests of all the people. There csr
talnly can be no more common Inter

At this time a question which Is
giving concern to road builders and
road authorities is that of kind or
class of construction. It goes to the
very root of the whole subject. It
may be taken as granted that there
Is no such thing as permanent con
struction. All classes of construction
will In time show signs ot use, and
give evidence of the necessity for re
pair. The expense of upkeep must
enter Into all calculations where high
ways are either to be constructed or
Improved. The only issue to be de
termined, therefore, is what character
of construction is best suited to pre
sent demands, according to locality,
and which through a term of years
will meet the requirements of the
The United States is woefully be
hind many of the countries of the old
world in the matter of road construc
tion and maintenance, and particular
ly the latter. This is because the
question has not received serious at
tention until within the past few
years. But the people are awakening
to the fact that poor roads are an ex
ceedingly poor public Investment.
Frank D. Lyon, former deputy com
missioner of the New York state de
partment of highways and a leading
expert on road construction, Is now
in Ohio studying conditions. He has
given a statement concerning the dif
ferent kinds of construction, their
cost, the cost of maintenance and
durability. It contains information
which has not heretofore been pub
lished, and ' valuable statistics of
which the people at large have no
knowledge. He said:
Brick pavements wear out. There
are instances, however, wherever
such pavements have lasted about 20
years, but which were exceedingly un
satisfactory and disagreeable for the
last four or flve years of their exist
ence. Brick streets 20 years old aro
in existence and look as if they might
last many years longer, but the travel
on them 1b light.
In Cuyahoga county, O., brick roads
have been rebuilt that were not over
nine years old. There Is nothing to
warrant an estimate of the life of an
average brick road. At best, it Is
generally conceded that It will not
last more than 20 years.
The average cost of a brick road,
16 feet wide, properly constructed, can
not be estimated at much less than
$25,000 per mile. Money being worth
E per cent interest fixes the Interest
maintenance at $1,250 per mile per
year. Add to this a low estimated cost
iur care ana attention or fizo par
mile per year, together with a fund
that naturally and necessarily must
be collected to resurface the brick
road. Assuming that the foundation
is Intact and will last for an Indefinite
period, a reasonable estimate of the
cost of such resurfacing would be
from $10,000 to $15,000 per mile!
Therefore a fund must be collected
ot from $500 to $700 per mile per
year for such resurfacing. It there
fore follows that, it Is fair and proper
to estimate the actual cost of the
maintenance of the average brick
road at from $1,875 to $2,075 per mile
per year. The above Is based on the
supposition that the subgrade has
been so thoroughly drained and the
base so carefully constructed that it
will not be thrown out of position
and will not need rebuilding and re
shaping. Concrete construction is In a purely
experimental stage. In some locali
ties, notably In Wayne county, Mich
igan, it is claimed that satisfactory
results have been attained. But from
reports from many other localities, it
Is proved conclusively that until prop
er methods of construction are known,"
that it seems highly improvident to
adopt thlr Mode of highway construc
tion, excepting for the purpose of
neetlng some local requirement, to
utilize local materials, and for experi
The aveiage cost of concrete road,
16 feet wioe, can not be estimated at
much less than $18,000 per mile.
Money being worth 5 per cont inter
est Axes the Interest maintenance at
900 par mile per year. To this must
ia addrt an exnense for care and
rcntlon, and also xa expense fay rs
surfacing, which Is an unknown quan
tity. It is conceded by many experi
enced road builders that the cost of
maintaining a concrete road through
a long term of years would be even
greater thun that of a brlclt road,
There is no doubt bat that concrete
for highway construction Is extreme
ly desirable In some sections ot the
country, where such construction
Ihould be resorted to on account o(
the necessity of utilizing local ma
terial to the best advantage.
A bituminous macadam road, 18
feet wide, made by the penetration
method, based on an experience of
about six years, and carrying a heavy
truffle, can be built for about $12,000
per mile. Money being worth 5 per
cent Interest Axes the Interest main
tenance at $600 per mile per year.
Add to this a. sum not to exceed $500
per mile per year for proper contin
uous maintenance, and this means
maintenance for an Indefinite period.
(This last statement or proposition
may seem strange to the layman, but
it Is the conclusion reached by au
thorities who have given this subject
careful thought and study.
The average cost of an ordinary
wnter-bonded macadam road, 16 feet
wide, with a carpet or a bituminous
cover, properly constructed, can not
l'e estimated at much less than $8,000
per mile. Money being worth 5 ,per
cent Interest, fixes the Interest main
tenance at $400 per mile per year. To
which must be added a maintenance
charge ot an average of about $250
oer mile per year.
The above estimated coat ot main
tenance of a water-bonded macadam
highway is based upon French re
ports. Because of the fact that there
are no authentic records in existence
on the maintenance of such roads, of
ny country or any state, with the
exception of France. The French re
ports cover the maintenance of 24,000
miles of so-caleld state highways for
the year 1912.
The proper maintenance of a watei
bonded macuuam highway is uuo
fOUtinuoutj maintenance, continuous
maintenance means added strength
and a better road from year to yei.
Eternal vigilance muu be the wuu
word wher we speak of maintenao
The average cost of a gravel rca
16 teet wide can not be estimated at
much less than about $4,000 per mUu.
Apply the interest charges as above,
together with an estimate of about.
$1!00 per mile per year for mainte
nance, and you have another extreme
ly desirable type of construction.
Apply the same Ideas as aboie tu
tho more inexpensive types or class
es, such at. sand, clay and earn
roads. Under proper supervision
and direction of proper authorities,
problems are presented that uie
worthy of the consideration of all
who are interested in highway im
provement. The following should be given crro
ful consideration, viz: Given two cen
ters of population, which of course
aro marketing points connected by a
public highway, say 30 miles In
length, a wise and experienced roao
builder naturally would take Into con
sideration the units that such hig..
way at various points would be caiieii
upon to carry. Should he be miudfu
of the real science In road bulldlnfe
viz: the construction of the greater,
number of miles at the minimum
cost, he would recognize the fact tha.
at a point equa-dlstant from these
two centers of population, the high
way would be called upon to carrj
the minimum number of units. Willi
at and near the centers of population,
the same highway might be calleu
upon to carry the maximum numbe.
Therefore no road builder of ex
perience, and desirous of conserving
the best interests ot the public at
large, would assume to adopt a tin:
form plan of construction on this pai
tlcular road for Its entire length
This same principle naturally ana
necessarily must apply to the con
struction of any main thoroughfare
connecting any principal points.
The vital problem to be solved is
that of maintenance, and it is safe to
say that no system has ever been in
augurated In any state for systematic
maintenance of macadam highways
equal to that of France. However
the French plan or system was In ex
istence in New York state for a short
period, and proved to be very suc
cessful and efficient, until such sys
tem was subserved for the purpose of
conserving political interests, Manj
miles of poorly constructed stone
roads are classified as macadam high
ways, and the layman or the eleventh
hour experts, as above referred to,
are too prone to condemn without a
knowledge of the subject.
The French road builders are pro
nounced In advising the American
people to continue the construction of
macadam highways, wherever practi
cable, with the statement that such
construction is the greatest added
tsset In highway work. But in this
tountry, where conditions are some
ivhat different, the conservative and
considerate road builders are advis
ing the construction or Improvement
of earth and gravel roads wherever
and whenever such types or classes
of improvement will serve local re
quirements and where the soil condi
tions will permit.
All should be careful to Inform
themselves to the end that In ad
vancing their opinions they are not
prone to damage the very interests
that they most wish to conserve.
Knowledge of this subject is essen
tial, eo that public opinion will not
te formed of a character that nay
lave a tendency to retard progress
