County Affected
To comply with provisions of the
Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1944,
Director Ford contacted county road
officials in each of the 88 counties
and discussed their secondary pro
grams with them. Through their fine
co-operation, the system was drawn
up and submitted to the Federal
agency in near-record time, Mr.
Ford said.
Distribution of mileage between
local and state highway systems was
left by the Highway Act to the dis
cretion of the state highway direc
tous of highways. Director Ford said
he decided that since about equal
traffic exists on Ohio’s state and
local secondary routes, he thought it
only fair to develop the program
approximately 50-50. No formula was
used, he said. Rather, traffic service
and the ability of local authorities to
