dejmrtment. Under the direction of our
division engineer, tne counvy run
ptrueed the Rockville-Ravenna road
and other sections of road that have
been referred to in articles as only
costing one-thenth of the amount of
money that it cost to construct state
roads'. These roads were constructed
by shaping up the surface with a
blade grader, and not transporting any
p.ny tarth excepting from the side
ditch to the center of the road, leav
ing all the lower section at the foot
of the hills to be flooded and cut to
pieces each time we have heavy rains.
In comparing the cost of heavy
const ruction work on the roads in
Sherman county, I find that on two
contracts Ut in the county about the
amc times one contract let by the
county board west of Litchfield, the
grading on the project cost $1,H04.00
per mile, while on the project con
structed by the state highway depart
ment the grading cost was 2,359.00 per
mile. This is for the cost of grading,
exclusive of drainage structures, as a
greater part of the cost of the drain
age structures on the state aid road
was included in contract let to the
county board and constructed in ac
cordance with their wishes, I do not
believe there is any complaint on the
cost of that part of the work.
1 do not know what memler3 of the
board were present when the resolu
tion condemning the cost of the work
done by this department was pas.d,
however, when the contract was
awarded there was a full meeting of
the county board present, and they
recommended that the contract be
awarded and instructed their chair
man to sign the contract with this
department -
The county also had the opportunity
to take the work and handle it with
county forces at the time. This pri
vilege has been offered to every county
In the state when state and federal
aid roads are awarded.
Several articles have appeared in
papers in regard to statements made
