SURVEYS FOR POTENTIAL SOURCES OF AGGREGATES

SURVEYS FOR POTENTIAL SOURCES OF AGGREGATES HAVE BEEN AN IMPORTANT ASPECT OF THE HIGHWAY PROGRAM IN WISCONSIN FOR MORE THAN 40 YEARS. THE SURVEYS HAVE BECOME INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT IN RECENT YEARS BECAUSE OF A RAPIDLY DIMINISHING SUPPLY OF ACCEPTABLE AGGREGATES IN AREAS OF FORMER ABUNDANCE , AND THE LARGE VOLUMES OF AGGREGATES REQUIRED FOR HIGHWAYS OF INTERSTATE STANDARDS. THE BASIC PURPOSE OF SUCH SURVEYS IS TO PROVIDE SAVINGS IN THE COST OF TRANSPORTING AGGREGATES TO THE PROJECT. /AUTHOR/
