HOW TO MAKE A GOOD ROAD.
The State Ty pographical Engineer of New
Jersey has lately made a report ou the best
manner «T making anJ preserving common
roads, from which useful hints may be gatb
ered. This report states first the conditions
which a properly constructed road ought to
have. They are—1, to be as short us possi
ble, but its length should be subordinate
to an easy grade ; -, to be nearly as level as
possible without incurring unnecessary ex
pense in culling;the cost should be govern
ed bv the prospective amount of travel.
After condemning the common error of
constructing roads hastily, the report pro
j ceeds:—
“The plan of ploughing on each side, and
throwing the dirt in the middle, is a misera
ble one, the decay of the vegetable matter
producing mud. For a common earth road,
the surface soil should be removed, and
ditches formed at the sides. The road should
be raised a foot in the middle for a thirty
feet roa 1, and two for a sixty feet. In level
countries, it should he made artificially un
dulating. If a removal of the surface soil
makes the road too low, it should be raised
by dirt from adjacent excavations. It the
soil is sandy, the road should be graded and
then a coating of clay put on it; this may
cover but half the roau, leaving the sandy
side to be used in wet weather, and vice ver
sa on a clay soil. Rollers should be used to
pack roads. Ordinary earth roads would be
improved by a coating of gravel, rolled
down, the ruts being rolled out as last as
they occur. When they become solid, anoth
er coating should be put on.
Hard stone broken into cubical pieces of
i .. * ! .. 1* — .. A 1 . I A A lin A i.f
tnu muurr in uiauiciriy u *
:i properly prepared aud well dniiued earth
road, makes a smooth and hard orust. It
should ho laid on iu courses of three inches
and exposed to travel, being rolled iu wet
weather. Slate is a good substance. 1 it
shallow, swamp land, the b<>g should be re
moved and the road embankment be laid on
the bottom. But if tho swamp soil is too
deep, a layer of sods, grass down, should he
laid, and theu another, grass upwards. Tn
very deep swamps, thorough drainage should
he resorted t«\ cross ditches la'ing made,
tilled with large stones or brush wood. Iu
extreme cases, bundles of saplings should ho
laid, first crosswise and theu lengthwise. It
these methods should tail, piles must he
used. In crossing salt marshes several
layers of sods should he put on each side
ot the road, and the interior be tilled iu w ith
gravel.
Mr. Viellc says in regard to bridges, that
tho widest space where unsupported stretch
ers should be placed is It) teet, and the
stretchers should theu be l-> by 8 inches, and
laid every two feet. In wider spaces, the
stretchers should ho supported hy struts.—
Good planWsf and not logs or slab, should be
used lor flooring.
The maximum grade of a road should he
one in thirty, and au alteration of all heavier
grades to that would he a matter of economy.
Repairs of roads should be made with new
materials, not with ground taken fiom the
sides. They should he repaired in spring
or early summer. The policy should be to
keen them up rather than repair them.
Wagons w ithout springs and w ith narrow*
wheels are injurious to roads. \V ide wheels
should he used lor heavy wagons. A good
instrument for levelling roads and tilling ruts
is a heavy bar of timber, shod with iron, and
attached obliquely to the pole, so an to be
drawn along quartering.
