THIS PAPER IS ANOTHER IN A SERIES STARTING ABOUT 1935 DEALING WITH THE SERVICE LIFE OF HIGHWAY AND STREET PAVEMENTS. AVERAGE SERVICE LIFE AND CURVES OF THE RETIREMENT DISTRIBUTIONS FOR THE COMPOSITE DATA FROM 26 STATES AND PUERTO RICO ARE GIVEN. THE STUDY INCLUDES ONLY PRIMARY RURAL STATE HIGHWAYS AND COVERS THE FOLLOWING PAVEMENT TYPES: BITUMINOUS SURFACE-TREATED (F), MIXED BITUMINOUS (G-1), MIXED BITUMINOUS (G-2), BITUMINOUS PENETRATION (H-1), BITUMINOUS PENETRATION (H-2), BITUMINOUS CONCRETE (I), AND PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE (J). THE DATA ANALYZED REPRESENT THE CONDITION ON THE STATE HIGHWAYS AS OF JANUARY 1, 1960. THE PAPER INCLUDES THE ORIGINAL DATA ON THE MILEAGES SURVIVING YEAR-BY-YEAR BY VINTAGE FOR THE SEVEN TYPES OF PAVEMENTS AND ILLUSTRATIVE EXAMPLES OF THE DETAILS OF CALCULATION OF THE SURVIVOR CURVES AND SERVICE LIVES. THE REASONS FOR RETIRING PAVEMENTS AND THE REPLACEMENT TYPES ARE GIVEN. REPLACEMENTS SHOW A STEADY UPGRADING TO HIGHER TYPES. COMPARISONS WITH THE PRECEDING PAPER, PUBLISHED IN 1956, SHOW NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN AVERAGE SERVICE LIVES. /AUTHOR/
