The paper discusses an approach taken in Michigan to a problem caused by a combination of vastly increased demands for road construction and the difficulties incurred by the interstate highway system documentation and tight specification requirements. This presentation explains the procedure followed by a subcommittee of the Michigan County Road Association in attempting to provide a design procedure that would correlate concrete and asphalt designs, utilize local materials, all with reasonable controls and costs. The result was the "Road Design Manual" and the start of a common design language.
