LOW COST ROAD SURFACING IN FREDERICK COUNTY, MARYLAND

IN MOST CASES THE COUNTY ROAD SYSTEM IN THE STATES IS INDEPENDENT OF THE STATE SYSTEM AND FAR EXCEEDS THE STATE MILEAGE. TRAFFIC VARIES FROM A FEW VEHICLES TO SEVERAL HUNDRED A DAY; BOTH LOW- AND HIGH-VOLUME ROADS MUST INCREASINGLY BE ALL-WEATHER AND DUST-FREE. LOCAL ROADS CARRY ABOUT 30% OF TOTAL VEHICLE MILES OVER 85% OF TOTAL ROAD MILES. THE COSTS OF DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION, IMPROVEMENT, AND MAINTENANCE MUST ACCORDINGLY BE KEPT TO A MINIMUM.
