HIGHWAY PLANNING FOR A GROWING ECONOMY

HIGHWAYS MUST PROVIDE MEANS FOR A SWIFT AND ECONOMICAL TRANSPORTATION OF PEOPLE AND GOODS FROM ONE CORNER OF THE COUNTRY TO THE OTHER. FOR A WELL-PLANNED HIGHWAY SYSTEM FOR A GROWING ECONOMY, REAL COSTS AND HIGHWAY CAPACITY MOVES MUST BE DETERMINED. A SOUND HIGHWAY PROGRAM MUST BE ONE WHICH RECOGNIZES AND SERVES AN ECONOMY GROWING AT A 3-1/2 TO 5 PERCENT RATE PER YEAR, AND ONE WHICH CHARGES THE DIRECT BENEFICIARY AT LEAST WHAT IT COSTS TO PAVE THEM, WHETHER THE BENEFICIARY BENEFITS PRIMARILY FROM THE TRANSPORTATION OF GOODS OR FROM ACCESS TO A HIGHWAY.
