Abstract:
Milwaukee commenced to build roads in 1912 and was at that time in considerable doubt as to which type of road to use, I was detailed to investigate bituminous concrete roads, and made a considerable study of this type of construction, finding that in a great many cities they had not had the success with this type of pavement that they had expeected. Attention was then directed to the concrete road, and after considerable investifation, it was adopted as the type of proper pavement to be used.
