THE INDIANAPOLIS TIMES CITY GETS HIGH QUALITY WORK, ENGINEER SAYS Supervision of Contractors Results in Better Paving Jobs. More Intelligent supervision and inspection of public improvement jobs in Indianapolis has resulted in a better quality of work. This is the. verdict of City En gineer A. H. Moore, who, reviewing two years as city engineer, today declared: “We don’t take credit for cheaper prices because the war was on be fore we came to city hall. But we do think better work has been done by contractors.” “From the standpoint of the prop erty owner it is desirable that the bitter competition between asphalt and concrete contractors continue. A few years ago the city used to be districted and contractors agreed among themselves that they would get all work in certain sections of the city. “Prices haven’t been reduced ma .

They were low when we entered office .because contractors were cutcing each other’s throats on costs. Modern methods and ma chinery have enabled contractors to make money despite the low figures,” Moore declared. The improvement in quality of sidewalk and curb concrete is shown by the tests which show jobs today stand a test of from 3,500 to 4,500 pounds pressure to each square inch, while in 1926 the test averaged 2,260 pounds, Moore said. Proper mixing has been respon sible for the better quality work, the same specifications and ingredi ents being used, he asserted. M. G. Johnson, assistant engineer, supervised and instructed contrac tors in proper methods and time for mixing cement, a uniform prod uct being the result. Contractors themselves are said to be better satisfied.
