The number of square yards of concrete pavement that were laid during the year 1914 amounted to about 14,000,000. This is almost as many square yards as the total previously laid. The number includes concrete streets and roads, as well as alleys. The reports are not complete, and probably never will be. In addition to the above, contracts were let for over 4,000,000 sq. yd., which makes the total yardage laid and contracted for during the year 1914 greater than a combination of that in all previous years.
