“We were not a wealthy Nation when we began improving our highways, but the roads themselves helped us create a new wealth, in business and industry and land values. So it was not our wealth that made our highways possible. Rather, it was our highways that made our wealth possible.” – Thomas H. MacDonald, Chief of the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads
Our Road System – Our Lifeline
The Interstate system, city streets and farm to market roads all continue to be vital to our standard of living in transporting goods, services and ourselves.
Better Quality at Lower Life Cycle Cost
In the last 15 years, there have been major advances in the technology for asphalt road paving products. The $150 million federal Strategic Highway Research Project and other researchers have introduced performance specifications to reduce the risk of failures, improve quality and lower life cycle costs. The importance of tack in pavement structural strength, the quality of a performance-graded asphalt for hot mix asphalt, the use of asphalt emulsions for building strength into stabilized bases, and cost-effective cold mix technology for rural roads are just some of the methods for achieving these goals.
