About Dirt Roads of Putnam County

Old Roads Preservation and Improvement


The County planned to pave the lightly traveled historic dirt roads due to "maintenance costs". The Old Roads Society wanted to keep the roads in their historic condition.


Show that the life cycle costs for the dirt roads in this situation were lesser than that for paved roads. Show studies that prove this, and show studies where counties are letting their paved roads go back to gravel due to high pavement replacement costs.
