    Acoustical implications

    Roadway surfacing choices are known to affect the intensity and spectrum of sound emanating from the tire/surface interaction.[53] Initial applications of noise studies occurred in the early 1970s. Noise phenomena are highly influenced by vehicle speed.

    Roadway surface types contribute differential noise effects of up to 4 dB, with chip seal type and grooved roads being the loudest, and concrete surfaces without spacers being the quietest. Asphaltic surfaces perform intermediately relative to concrete and chip seal. Rubberized asphalt has been shown to give a marginal 3–5 dB reduction in tire-pavement noise emissions, and a marginally discernible 1–3 dB reduction in total road noise emissions when compared to conventional asphalt applications.

    Surface deterioration

    Deteriorating asphalt

    As pavement systems primarily fail due to fatigue (in a manner similar to metals), the damage done to pavement increases with the fourth power of the axle load of the vehicles traveling on it. According to the AASHO Road Test, heavily loaded trucks can do more than 10,000 times the damage done by a normal passenger car. Tax rates for trucks are higher than those for cars in most countries for this reason, though they are not levied in proportion to the damage done.[54] Passenger cars are considered to have little practical effect on a pavement's service life, from a materials fatigue perspective.

    Other failure modes include aging and surface abrasion. As years go by, the binder in a bituminous wearing course gets stiffer and less flexible. When it gets "old" enough, the surface will start losing aggregates, and macrotexture depth increases dramatically. If no maintenance action is done quickly on the wearing course, potholes will form. The freeze-thaw cycle in cold climates will dramatically accelerate pavement deterioration, once water can penetrate the surface. Clay and fumed silica nanoparticles may potentially be used as efficient UV-anti aging coatings in asphalt pavements.[55]

    If the road is still structurally sound, a bituminous surface treatment, such as a chipseal or surface dressing can prolong the life of the road at low cost. In areas with cold climate, studded tires may be allowed on passenger cars. In Sweden and Finland, studded passenger car tires account for a very large share of pavement rutting.[56]

    The physical properties of a stretch of pavement can be tested using a falling weight deflectometer.

    Several design methods have been developed to determine the thickness and composition of road surfaces required to carry predicted traffic loads for a given period of time. Pavement design methods are continuously evolving. Among these are the Shell Pavement design method, and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) 1993/98 "Guide for Design of Pavement Structures". A mechanistic-empirical design guide was developed through the NCHRP process, resulting in the Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG), which was adopted by AASHTO in 2008, although MEPDG implementation by state departments of transportation has been slow.[57]

    Further research by University College London into pavements has led to the development of an indoor, 80-sq-metre artificial pavement at a research centre called Pedestrian Accessibility and Movement Environment Laboratory (PAMELA). It is used to simulate everyday scenarios, from different pavement users to varying pavement conditions.[58] There also exists a research facility near Auburn University, the NCAT Pavement Test Track, that is used to test experimental asphalt pavements for durability.

    In addition to repair costs, the condition of a road surface has economic effects for road users. Rolling resistance increases on rough pavement, as does wear and tear of vehicle components. It has been estimated that poor road surfaces cost the average US driver $324 per year in vehicle repairs, or a total of $67 billion. Also, it has been estimated that small improvements in road surface conditions can decrease fuel consumption between 1.8 and 4.7%.[59]

    Markings

    Road surface markings are used on paved roadways to provide guidance and information to drivers and pedestrians. It can be in the form of mechanical markers such as cat's eyes, botts' dots and rumble strips, or non-mechanical markers such as paints, thermoplastic, plastic and epoxy.

The LHA also sponsored short concrete "Seedling Mile" object lesson roads in many locations (the first, built in the fall of 1914, was just west of Malta, Illinois). The "Seedling Miles," according to the LHA's 1924 guide, were intended "to demonstrate the desirability of this permanent type of road construction" and "crystallize public sentiment" for "further construction of the same character." Generally, the LHA worked with the Portland Cement Association to arrange donations of cement for the seeding mileage...The most famous "seedling" and one of the most talked about portions of the Lincoln Highway was the 1.3-mile "Ideal Section" between Dyer and Schererville in Lake County, Indiana. In 1920, the LHA decided to develop a model section of road that would be adequate not only for current traffic but for highway transportation over the following 2 decades. The LHA assembled 17 of the country's foremost highway experts for meetings in December 1920 and February 1921 to decide design details of the Ideal Section. They agreed on such features as: A 110-foot right-of-way; A 40-foot wide concrete pavement 10 inches thick (maximum loads of 8,000 pounds per wheel were the basis for the pavement design); Minimum radius for curves of 1,000 feet, with guardrail at all embankments; Curves superelevated (i.e., banked) for a speed of 35 miles per hour; No grade crossings or advertising signs; and A footpath for pedestrians.

    Road surface Language Watch Edit This article is about road surface pavement material For other uses of the term pavement see Pavement disambiguation A road surface British English or pavement American English is the durable surface material laid down on an area intended to sustain vehicular or foot traffic such as a road or walkway In the past gravel road surfaces cobblestone and granite setts were extensively used but these have mostly been replaced by asphalt or concrete laid on a compacted base course Asphalt mixtures have been used in pavement construction since the beginning of the 20th century and are of two types metalled roads and unmetalled roads Metalled roadways are made to sustain vehicular load and so are usually made on frequently used roads Unmetalled roads also known as gravel roads are rough and can sustain less weight Road surfaces are frequently marked to guide traffic A road being resurfaced using a road roller Red surfacing for the bicycle lane in the

thickness of a pavement can be measured using granular base equivalency Wheeled transport created the need for better roads Generally natural materials cannot be both soft enough to form well graded surfaces and strong enough to bear wheeled vehicles especially when wet and stay intact In urban areas it began to be worthwhile to build stone paved streets and in fact the first paved streets appear to have been built in Ur in 4000 BC Corduroy roads were built in Glastonbury England in 3300 BC 5 and brick paved roads were built in the Indus Valley Civilization on the Indian subcontinent from around the same time Improvements in metallurgy meant that by 2000 BC stone cutting tools were generally available in the Middle East and Greece allowing local streets to be paved 6 Notably in about 2000 BC the Minoans built a 50 km paved road from Knossos in North Crete through the mountains to Gortyn and Lebena a port on the south coast of the island which had side drains a 200 mm thick pavement of sandstone blocks bound with clay gypsum mortar covered by a layer of basaltic flagstones and had separate shoulders This road could be considered superior to any Roman road 7 Roman roads varied from simple corduroy roads to paved roads using deep roadbeds of tamped rubble as an underlying layer to ensure that they kept dry as the water would flow out from between the stones and fragments of rubble instead of becoming mud in clay soils Although there were attempts to rediscover Roman methods there was little useful innovation in road building before the 18th century The first professional road builder to emerge during the Industrial Revolution was John Metcalf who constructed about 180 miles 290 km of turnpike road mainly in the north of England from 1765 when Parliament passed an act authorising the creation of turnpike trusts to build new toll funded roads in the Knaresborough area Pierre Marie Jerome Tresaguet is widely credited with establishing the first scientific approach to road building in France at the same time as Metcalf He wrote a memorandum on his method in 1775 which became general practice in France It involved a layer of large rocks covered by a layer of smaller gravel By the late 18th and early 19th centuries new methods of highway construction had been pioneered by the work of two British engineers Thomas Telford and John Loudon McAdam Telford s method of road building involved the digging of a large trench in which a foundation of heavy rock was set He also designed his roads so that they sloped downwards from the centre allowing drainage to take place a major improvement on the work of Tresaguet The surface of his roads consisted of broken stone McAdam developed an inexpensive paving material of soil and stone aggregate known as macadam His road building method was simpler than Telford s yet more effective at protecting roadways he discovered that massive foundations of rock upon rock were unnecessary and asserted that native soil alone would support the road and traffic upon it as long as it was covered by a road crust that would protect the soil underneath from water and wear 8 Size of stones was central to McAdam s road building theory The lower 200 millimetre 7 9 in road thickness was restricted to stones no larger than 75 millimetres 3 0 in Modern tarmac was patented by British civil engineer Edgar Purnell Hooley who noticed that spilled tar on the roadway kept the dust down and created a smooth surface 9 He took out a patent in 1901 for tarmac 10 Hooley s 1901 patent for Tarmac involved mechanically mixing tar and aggregate prior to lay down and then compacting the mixture with a steamroller The tar was modified by adding small amounts of Portland cement resin and pitch 11 Asphalt EditMain article Asphalt concrete Closeup of asphalt on a driveway Laying asphalt Asphalt specifically asphalt concrete sometimes called flexible pavement due to the nature in which it distributes loads has been widely used since the 1920s The viscous nature of the bitumen binder allows asphalt concrete to sustain significant plastic deformation although fatigue from repeated loading over time is the most common failure mechanism Most asphalt surfaces are laid on a gravel base which is generally at least as thick as the asphalt layer although some full depth asphalt surfaces are laid directly on the native subgrade In areas with very soft or expansive subgrades such as clay or peat thick gravel bases or stabilization of the subgrade with Portland cement or lime may be required Polypropylene and polyester geosynthetics have also been used for this purpose 12 and in some northern countries a layer of polystyrene boards have been used to delay and minimize frost penetration into the subgrade 13 Depending on the temperature at which it is applied asphalt is categorized as hot mix warm mix half warm mix or cold mix 14 Hot mix asphalt is applied at temperatures over 300 F 150 C with a free floating screed Warm mix asphalt is applied at temperatures of 200 250 F 95 120 C resulting in reduced energy usage and emissions of volatile organic compounds 15 Cold mix asphalt is often used on lower volume rural roads where hot mix asphalt would cool too much on the long trip from the asphalt plant to the construction site 16 An asphalt concrete surface will generally be constructed for high volume primary highways having an average annual daily traffic load greater than 1200 vehicles per day 17 Advantages of asphalt roadways include relatively low noise relatively low cost compared with other paving methods and perceived ease of repair Disadvantages include less durability than other paving methods less tensile strength than concrete the tendency to become slick and soft in hot weather and a certain amount of hydrocarbon pollution to soil and groundwater or waterways In the mid 1960s rubberized asphalt was used for the first time mixing crumb rubber from used tires with asphalt 18 While a potential use for tires that would otherwise fill landfills and present a fire hazard rubberized asphalt has shown greater incidence of wear in freeze thaw cycles in temperate zones due to non homogeneous expansion and contraction with non rubber components The application of rubberized asphalt is more temperature sensitive and in many locations can only be applied at certain times of the year citation needed Study results of the long term acoustic benefits of rubberized asphalt are inconclusive Initial application of rubberized asphalt may provide 3 5 decibels dB reduction in tire pavement source noise emissions however this translates to only 1 3 decibels dB in total traffic noise level reduction due to the other components of traffic noise Compared to traditional passive attenuating measures e g noise walls and earth berms rubberized asphalt provides shorter lasting and lesser acoustic benefits at typically much greater expense 19 Concrete EditFurther information Concrete Concrete roadway in San Jose California A concrete road in Ewing New Jersey The original pavement was laid in the 1950s and has not been significantly altered since citation needed Concrete surfaces specifically Portland cement concrete are created using a concrete mix of Portland cement coarse aggregate sand and water In virtually all modern mixes there will also be various admixtures added to increase workability reduce the required amount of water mitigate harmful chemical reactions and for other beneficial purposes In many cases there will also be Portland cement substitutes added such as fly ash This can reduce the cost of the concrete and improve its physical properties The material is applied in a freshly mixed slurry and worked mechanically to compact the interior and force some of the cement slurry to the surface to produce a smoother denser surface free from honeycombing The water allows the mix to combine molecularly in a chemical reaction called hydration Concrete surfaces have been classified into three common types jointed plain JPCP jointed reinforced JRCP and continuously reinforced CRCP The one item that distinguishes each type is the jointing system used to control crack development One of the major advantages of concrete pavements is they are typically stronger and more durable than asphalt roadways They also can be grooved to provide a durable skid resistant surface A previous disadvantage was that they had a higher initial cost and could be more time consuming to construct This cost can typically be offset through the long life cycle of the pavement and the higher cost of bitumen Concrete pavement can be maintained over time utilizing a series of methods known as concrete pavement restoration which include diamond grinding dowel bar retrofits joint and crack sealing cross stitching etc Diamond grinding is also useful in reducing noise and restoring skid resistance in older concrete pavement 20 21 The first street in the United States to be paved with concrete was Court Avenue in Bellefontaine Ohio in 1893 22 23 The first mile of concrete pavement in the United States was on Woodward Avenue in Detroit Michigan in 1909 24 Following these pioneering uses the Lincoln Highway Association established in October 1913 to oversee the creation of one of the United States earliest east west transcontinental highways for the then new automobile began to establish seedling miles of specifically concrete paved roadbed in various places in the American Midwest starting in 1914 west of Malta Illinois while using concrete with the specified concrete ideal section for the Lincoln Highway in Lake County Indiana during 1922 and 1923 25 Concrete roadways may produce more noise than asphalt due to tire noise on cracks and expansion joints A concrete pavement composed of multiple slabs of uniform size will produce a periodic sound and vibration in each vehicle as its tires pass over each expansion joint These monotonous repeated sounds and vibrations can cause a fatiguing or hypnotic effect upon the driver over the course of a long journey Composite pavement Edit An example of composite pavement hot mix asphalt overlaid onto Portland cement concrete pavement Composite pavements combine a Portland cement concrete sublayer with an asphalt overlay They are usually used to rehabilitate existing roadways rather than in new construction Asphalt overlays are sometimes laid over distressed concrete to restore a smooth wearing surface 26 A disadvantage of this method is that movement in the joints between the underlying concrete slabs whether from thermal expansion and contraction or from deflection of the concrete slabs from truck axle loads usually causes reflective cracks in the asphalt To decrease reflective cracking concrete pavement is broken apart through a break and seat crack and seat or rubblization process Geosynthetics can be used for reflective crack control 27 With break and seat and crack and seat processes a heavy weight is dropped on the concrete to induce cracking then a heavy roller is used to seat the resultant pieces into the subbase The main difference between the two processes is the equipment used to break the concrete pavement and the size of the resulting pieces The theory is that frequent small cracks will spread thermal stress over a wider area than infrequent large joints reducing the stress on the overlying asphalt pavement Rubblization is a more complete fracturing of the old worn out concrete effectively converting the old pavement into an aggregate base for a new asphalt road 28 The whitetopping process uses Portland cement concrete to resurface a distressed asphalt road Recycling Edit source source source An asphalt milling machine in Boise Idaho Distressed pavement can be reused when rehabilitating a roadway The existing pavement is broken up and may be ground on site through a process called milling This pavement is commonly referred to as reclaimed asphalt pavement RAP RAP can be transported to an asphalt plant where it will be stockpiled for use in new pavement mixes 29 or it may be recycled in place using the techniques described below For further information on asphalt mixes containing RAP and other recycled materials see Asphalt Concrete In Place Recycling Methods Edit Rubblizing of pavement Existing concrete pavement is milled into gravel sized particles Any steel reinforcing is removed and the ground pavement is compacted to form the base and or sub base layers for new asphalt pavement 30 Ground pavement may also be compacted for use on gravel roads 29 Cold in place recycling Bituminous pavement is ground or milled into small particles The asphalt millings are blended with asphalt emulsion foamed bitumen or soft bitumen to rejuvenate the aged asphalt binder 29 31 New aggregate may also be added The resulting asphalt mix is paved and compacted It may serve as the top pavement layer or it may be overlaid with new asphalt after curing 32 Hot in place recycling Bituminous pavement is heated to 250 300 F 120 150 C milled combined with a rejuvenating agent and or virgin asphalt binder and compacted It may then be overlaid with new asphalt concrete 32 This process typically recycles the top two inches 50 mm or less and may be used to correct surface defects such as rutting or polishing 32 To preserve the condition of the asphalt binder and avoid excessive hydrocarbon emissions heating is typically achieved gradually through the use of infrared or hot air heaters 29 Full depth reclamation The full thickness of the asphalt pavement and underlying material is pulverized to provide a uniform blend of material 29 32 A binding agent or stabilizing material may be mixed in to form a base course for the new pavement or it may be left unbound to form a sub base course Common binding agents include asphalt emulsion fly ash hydrated lime Portland cement and calcium chloride 29 32 Virgin aggregate RAP or crushed Portland cement may also be added to improve the gradation and mechanical properties of the mix 32 This technique is typically used to address structural failures in the pavement such as alligator cracking deep rutting and shoulder drop off 32 Bituminous surface EditMain article Chipseal Bituminous surface treatment BST or chipseal is used mainly on low traffic roads but also as a sealing coat to rejuvenate an asphalt concrete pavement It generally consists of aggregate spread over a sprayed on asphalt emulsion or cut back asphalt cement The aggregate is then embedded into the asphalt by rolling it typically with a rubber tired roller This type of surface is described by a wide variety of regional terms including chip seal tar and chip oil and stone seal coat sprayed seal 33 surface dressing 34 microsurfacing 35 or as simply bitumen BST is used on hundreds of miles of the Alaska Highway and other similar roadways in Alaska the Yukon Territory and northern British Columbia The ease of application of BST is one reason for its popularity but another is its flexibility which is important when roadways are laid down over unstable terrain that thaws and softens in the spring Other types of BSTs include micropaving slurry seals and Novachip These are laid down using specialized and proprietary equipment They are most often used in urban areas where the roughness and loose stone associated with chip seals is considered undesirable Thin membrane surface Edit A thin membrane surface TMS is an oil treated aggregate which is laid down upon a gravel road bed producing a dust free road 36 A TMS road reduces mud problems and provides stone free roads for local residents where loaded truck traffic is negligible The TMS layer adds no significant structural strength and so is used on secondary highways with low traffic volume and minimal weight loading Construction involves minimal subgrade preparation following by covering with a 50 to 100 millimetre 2 0 3 9 in cold mix asphalt aggregate 17 The Operation Division of the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure in Saskatchewan has the responsibility of maintaining 6 102 kilometres 3 792 mi of thin membrane surface TMS highways 37 Otta seal Edit Otta seal is a low cost road surface using a 16 30 millimetre 0 63 1 18 in thick mixture of bitumen and crushed rock 38 Gravel surface Edit Gravel road in Namibia Main article Gravel road Gravel is known to have been used extensively in the construction of roads by soldiers of the Roman Empire see Roman road but in 1998 a limestone surfaced road thought to date back to the Bronze Age was found at Yarnton in Oxfordshire Britain 39 Applying gravel or metalling has had two distinct usages in road surfacing The term road metal refers to the broken stone or cinders used in the construction or repair of roads or railways 40 and is derived from the Latin metallum which means both mine and quarry 41 The term originally referred to the process of creating a gravel roadway The route of the roadway would first be dug down several feet and depending on local conditions French drains may or may not have been added Next large stones were placed and compacted followed by successive layers of smaller stones until the road surface was composed of small stones compacted into a hard durable surface Road metal later became the name of stone chippings mixed with tar to form the road surfacing material tarmac A road of such material is called a metalled road in Britain a paved road in Canada and the US or a sealed road in parts of Canada Australia and New Zealand 42 A granular surface can be used with a traffic volume where the annual average daily traffic is 1 200 vehicles per day or less citation needed There is some structural strength if the road surface combines a sub base and base and is topped with a double graded seal aggregate with emulsion 17 43 Besides the 4 929 kilometres 3 063 mi of granular pavements maintained in Saskatchewan around 40 of New Zealand roads are unbound granular pavement structures 37 44 The decision whether to pave a gravel road or not often hinges on traffic volume It has been found that maintenance costs for gravel roads often exceed the maintenance costs for paved or surface treated roads when traffic volumes exceed 200 vehicles per day 45 Some communities are finding it makes sense to convert their low volume paved roads to aggregate surfaces 46 Other surfaces EditPavers or paviours generally in the form of pre cast concrete blocks are often used for aesthetic purposes or sometimes at port facilities that see long duration pavement loading Pavers are rarely used in areas that see high speed vehicle traffic Brick cobblestone sett wood plank and wood block pavements such as Nicolson pavement were once common in urban areas throughout the world but fell out of fashion in most countries due to the high cost of labor required to lay and maintain them and are typically only kept for historical or aesthetic reasons citation needed In some countries however they are still common in local streets In the Netherlands brick paving has made something of a comeback since the adoption of a major nationwide traffic safety program in 1997 From 1998 through 2007 more than 41 000 km of city streets were converted to local access roads with a speed limit of 30 km h for the purpose of traffic calming 47 One popular measure is to use brick paving the noise and vibration slows motorists down At the same time it is not uncommon for cycle paths alongside a road to have a smoother surface than the road itself 48 49 Likewise macadam and tarmac pavements can still sometimes when be found buried underneath asphalt concrete or Portland cement concrete pavements but are rarely clarification needed constructed today when There are also other methods and materials to create pavements that have appearance of brick pavements The first method to create brick texture is to heat an asphalt pavement and use metal wires to imprint a brick pattern using a compactor to create stamped asphalt A similar method is to use rubber imprinting tools to press over a thin layer of cement to create decorative concrete Another method is to use a brick pattern stencil and apply a surfacing material over the stencil Materials that can be applied to give the color of the brick and skid resistance can be in many forms An example is to use colored polymer modified concrete slurry which can be applied by screeding or spraying 50 Another material is aggregate reinforced thermoplastic which can be heat applied to the top layer of the brick pattern surface 51 Other coating materials over stamped asphalt are paints and two part epoxy coating 52 Concrete pavers Replacing the old road with concrete blocks in Bo ao Road area Haikou City Hainan China Polymer cement overlaying to change asphalt pavement to brick texture and color to create decorative crosswalk Anti slip textured aluminum plate Acoustical implications EditRoadway surfacing choices are known to affect the intensity and spectrum of sound emanating from the tire surface interaction 53 Initial applications of noise studies occurred in the early 1970s Noise phenomena are highly influenced by vehicle speed Roadway surface types contribute differential noise effects of up to 4 dB with chip seal type and grooved roads being the loudest and concrete surfaces without spacers being the quietest Asphaltic surfaces perform intermediately relative to concrete and chip seal Rubberized asphalt has been shown to give a marginal 3 5 dB reduction in tire pavement noise emissions and a marginally discernible 1 3 dB reduction in total road noise emissions when compared to conventional asphalt applications Cobbles Rectangles Decorative wavy pattern on La Rambla Decorative mock brick pattern More decorative brickwork patternsSurface deterioration EditSee also Pothole Crocodile cracking Rut roads Bleeding roads and Pavement performance modeling Deteriorating asphalt As pavement systems primarily fail due to fatigue in a manner similar to metals the damage done to pavement increases with the fourth power of the axle load of the vehicles traveling on it According to the AASHO Road Test heavily loaded trucks can do more than 10 000 times the damage done by a normal passenger car Tax rates for trucks are higher than those for cars in most countries for this reason though they are not levied in proportion to the damage done 54 Passenger cars are considered to have little practical effect on a pavement s service life from a materials fatigue perspective Other failure modes include aging and surface abrasion As years go by the binder in a bituminous wearing course gets stiffer and less flexible When it gets old enough the surface will start losing aggregates and macrotexture depth increases dramatically If no maintenance action is done quickly on the wearing course potholes will form The freeze thaw cycle in cold climates will dramatically accelerate pavement deterioration once water can penetrate the surface Clay and fumed silica nanoparticles may potentially be used as efficient UV anti aging coatings in asphalt pavements 55 If the road is still structurally sound a bituminous surface treatment such as a chipseal or surface dressing can prolong the life of the road at low cost In areas with cold climate studded tires may be allowed on passenger cars In Sweden and Finland studded passenger car tires account for a very large share of pavement rutting 56 The physical properties of a stretch of pavement can be tested using a falling weight deflectometer Several design methods have been developed to determine the thickness and composition of road surfaces required to carry predicted traffic loads for a given period of time Pavement design methods are continuously evolving Among these are the Shell Pavement design method and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials AASHTO 1993 98 Guide for Design of Pavement Structures A mechanistic empirical design guide was developed through the NCHRP process resulting in the Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design Guide MEPDG which was adopted by AASHTO in 2008 although MEPDG implementation by state departments of transportation has been slow 57 Further research by University College London into pavements has led to the development of an indoor 80 sq metre artificial pavement at a research centre called Pedestrian Accessibility and Movement Environment Laboratory PAMELA It is used to simulate everyday scenarios from different pavement users to varying pavement conditions 58 There also exists a research facility near Auburn University the NCAT Pavement Test Track that is used to test experimental asphalt pavements for durability In addition to repair costs the condition of a road surface has economic effects for road users Rolling resistance increases on rough pavement as does wear and tear of vehicle components It has been estimated that poor road surfaces cost the average US driver 324 per year in vehicle repairs or a total of 67 billion Also it has been estimated that small improvements in road surface conditions can decrease fuel consumption between 1 8 and 4 7 59 Markings EditMain article Road surface marking Road surface markings are used on paved roadways to provide guidance and information to drivers and pedestrians It can be in the form of mechanical markers such as cat s eyes botts dots and rumble strips or non mechanical markers such as paints thermoplastic plastic and epoxy See also EditAsphalt

locations the first built in the fall of 1914 was just west of Malta Illinois The Seedling Miles according to the LHA s 1924 guide were intended to demonstrate the desirability of this permanent type of road construction and crystallize public sentiment for further construction of the same character Generally the LHA worked with the Portland Cement Association to arrange donations of cement for the seeding mileage The most famous seedling and one of the most talked about portions of the Lincoln Highway was the 1 3 mile Ideal Section between Dyer and Schererville in Lake County Indiana In 1920 the LHA decided to develop a model section of road that would be adequate not only for current traffic but for highway transportation over the following 2 decades The LHA assembled 17 of the country s foremost highway experts for meetings in December 1920 and February 1921 to decide design details of the Ideal Section They agreed on such features as A 110 foot right of way A 40 foot wide concrete pavement 10 inches thick maximum loads of 8 000 pounds per wheel were the basis for the pavement design Minimum radius for curves of 1 000 feet with guardrail at all embankments Curves
