HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION USAGE FACTORS FOR CEMENT, BITUMENS, CONCRETE PIPE AND CLAY PIPE

In an attempt to aid producers, manufactureres and suppliers of cement, bitumens, concrete pipe and clay pipe, usage factors are presented here in terms of units of the various materials per million dollars of construction cost. These factors, when multiplied by the number of millions of dollars for either a federal-aid or non-Federal-aid highway construction program, will result in reasonably accurate estimates of material requirements. The data employed in the development of usage factors are quantities of the major materials used and reported by contractors upon completion of highway construction projects on the Federal-aid Primary System. Investigations indicate that for comparable standards of design, material usage factors on non- Federal-aid work do not differ appreciably from those developed for Federal-aid construction. Estamated construction expenditures for all public highways are tabulated. A table is also presented of estimated national average secondary road factors.
