TIME-SAVING METHODS IN HIGHWAY ENGINEERING - CHAPTER 1: ADMINISTRATION

RESPONSES TO A SEVEN-QUESTION SURVEY OF THE VARIOUS STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENTS ARE REPORTED AND SUMMARIZED. THE QUESTIONS DEALT WITH ADMINISTRATIVE REORGANIZATION, REALIGNMENT OF FUNCTION, LIAISON PROCEDURES, USE OF PHOTOCOPY EQUIPMENT, ENLISTMENT OF NEW SKILLS, AND LEGISLATION AS THEY CONTRIBUTE TO MORE EFFICIENT OPERATION OF THE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT. ALTHOUGH A TREND TOWARD DECENTRALIZATION WAS NOTED, IT WAS GENERALLY FOUND THAT GOOD ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES ARE THOSE THAT ARE SUITED TO THE LOCAL SITUATION.
