CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS INPUT INTO HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION

DATA ARE PRESENTED IN THIS ARTICLE WHICH ARE ALSO COMPARED TO THOSE IN EARLIER ARTICLES ON THIS SUBJECT WHICH APPEARED IN 1956, 1960, 1962 AND 1966. A METHOD OF EXAMINING THE DEMAND FOR MATERIALS IN HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION, OTHER THAN ON A BASIS OF DOLLAR VOLUME IS TO ANALYZE EACH ITEM ON THE BASIS OF A "USE FACTOR," WHICH, AS USED BY THE FEDERAL HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION, IS THE EXPRESSION OF PHYSICAL UNITS CONSUMED PER MILLION DOLLARS OF HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION COSTS. A TABLE SHOWS THE "USE FACTORS" FOR THE MORE IMPORTANT MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES BY THE THREE MAIN CATEGORIES OF HIGHWAYS (INTERSTATE, OTHER PRIMARY AND SECONDARY) AND FOR ALL HIGHWAYS. /AUTHOR/
