HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION USAGE FACTORS FOR CEMENT, BITUMENS, CONCRETE PIPE AND CLAY PIPE
Tables are presented of usage factors in terms of units of the various materials per million dollars of construction cost, which when multipled by the number of millions of dollars for either a Federal-aid or non-Federal-aid highway construction program, will result in accurate estimates of material requirements. Of the various materials of highway construction, steel and aggregates constitute the largest elements of cost, amounting to 44 and 48 percent of all materials and supplies and between 19 and 22 percent of the total construction cost. Comparable percentages for the materials discussed here are tabulated. Estimated national average secondary road factors are shown as well as estimated construction expenditures for all public highways.
