The opinion is expressed that rough pavements are produced because the contractors attention to smoothness has been diverted by increased rates of production, OSHA and other factors, and also because designers and specification writers have imposed requirements for administrative and other reasons that detract from the contractors capability to produce a smooth pavement. The contractors' responsibilities are to provide equipment in good condition, provide competent operators, and direct management, supervisory and operating efforts to build smooth pavements. The responsibilities of the state or other agencies are listed. It is emphasized that both the contractor and the state and other agencies must think, plan and pave for smoothness.
