In the present economic and energy situation, the immediate task is identified as one of maintenance and improvement of existing roads and not necessarily one of building new roads. To this end, the Asphalt Institute recommends a number of pertinent publications (listed) which relate to asphalt surface treatments and asphalt penetration macadam, asphalt pavement maintenance, asphalt overlays and pavement rehabilitation, model specifications for small paving jobs, planned state construction with full depth asphalt concrete, and open graded asphalt friction courses. State and municipal authorities must seek a new emphasis which will enhance their - and the nation's - investment in already existing roads. Effort must be concentrated on strengthening, making safe, and smoothing out all types of streets, roads and highways.
