LOW-VOLUME ROADS: SECOND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE. PLENARY PRESENTATIONS. FEDERAL VIEWPOINT

A review is presented of the federal government's role in low-volume roads. Beginning with the federal aid highway program in 1916 and proceeding to the 1944 authorized federal funding for the secondary highway system, the federal involvement in low volume roads is discussed. The next major change in the federal role became evident in 1973 with the authorization of federal funding for new programs in areas where high costs were beyond the capability of local government to finance. These new programs are reviewed and brief mention is made of what is to be expected in the years ahead.
