Excerpt from A Treatise on Roads and Pavements

The problems involved in the construction and maintenance Of rural highways differ materially from those which are encountered in the improvement and care Of city streets, and therefore this discussion Of the subject Of Roads and Pavements will be divided into Part I, Country Roads, and Part II, City Pavements. In each division Of the subject certain general principles will first be considered, and the further discussion will be divided according to the several materials in use for road surfaces. It will not always be possible to keep the several portions entirely distinct, but a knowledge Of the intention in this respect will make it easier to understand the method Of presentation or to turn readily to the discussion Of any particular phase Of the subject.

The classification Of road surfaces into country Roads and City Pavements is partly according to the most general use Of each, and partly according to the elaborateness Of the construction. According to the somewhat loose classification here adopted road surfaces for country roads consist Of two parts, subgrade and wearing coat; while city pavements consist Of four parts, sub grade, foundation, a binder or cushion course, and a wearing coat.
