ORNDORFF, Auctioneer R. E. MORELAND, Clerk Lunch Rights Reserved Feb. 19-1t- Your West Virginia State Highway Commission has eliminated consideration of modern, heavy-duty Asphalt pavement for your lnterstate highways. WHY? As a result of this policy-right now-your state is paying over $100,000 MORE per mite for Interstate highways than neighboring states. WHY? Briefly, here are the facts: A contract for 3.3 miles of paving on your first Interstate project (Route 81) was let to cement concrete at a cost of $234,000 per mile. The same Route 81 continues north and south through Maryland and Virginia. It accommodates the same type and volume of traffic under identical soil and climatic conditions. Yet, Maryland is building its adjoining route with modern, heavy- duty Asphalt pavement at a cost of $130,000 per mile and Virginia has let five projects on the same route to rugged Asphalt pavement at an average cost of $122,000 per mile. In other words, you ara paying an average of 45% more per mile than the taxpayer in your neighbor- ing states to meet the same Interstate require- ments ? Think what this saving of $100,000 per mile could mean in terms of West Virginia's huge roadbuilding program! Savings like this could be used for improving and build- ing LOCAL roads.., the roads you live on... work on ... depend on ! Other states- from Maine to California- are taking advantage of the economy of heavy-duty Asphalt pave- merits for just this reason. Why isn't west virginia? Perhaps you've heard it said that Asphalt pavements cost more to maintain. Don't you believe it! A Congressional Committee, in 1954, explored maintenance costs between Asphalt and cement ments and reported: "The evidence we have from all sources that maintenance costs are, in fact, about for asphalt and concrete. That being the question relates principally to first costs." Has Asphalt pavement been eliminated to give jobs to home staters? Don't you believe it! There ar.e only a few cement paving contractors in WeS" Virginia. There are 22 Asphalt paving contractors read)' to bid for work, providing many MORE jobs thrug Asphalt construction. What's more, there's an abundance of native in most areas of West Virginia which can be Asphalt pavement construction. This creates an lent market for your local gravel and stone in employment for additional hundreds of West workers. Then WHY is consideration of modern, Asphalt pavement being eliminated? It can't be highway ruggedness.., or initial It can't be maintenance costs.., or more jobs ." basic construction materials ! Then WHY? It's in your own self interest to speak out now consideration of new-type Asphalt pavement as a petitive construction material for your How else can you protect yourself against paving costs?
