Concrete should be used for Arkansas' part of the National System of Interstate Highways This state's part of the National System of Interstate Highways is a. vita! link- in a road system that reaches every state in the Union, 42 state capitals and 182 of the 199 cities with a population of over 50,000. The njap above shows this ••lO.OOO-mile network. These are the interstate routes authorized by Congress and selected by the Bureau of Public Roads and the various state highway departments. Although comprising only \% of the total road mileage in the country, these key routes Carry over 20% of the rural traffic. These roads are essential to the smooth and economical flow of commerce; the swift movement of men and material in defense; the quick and efficient evacuation of cities in emergencies and the safe, comfortable and enjoyable travel of motorists. The sections of the heavily-traveled Interstate System in this state should be paved with the longest-lasting, most economical pnvement- Concrete. Concrete is moderate in first cost, requires little maintenanca and lasts a lifetime. Result: /ow-annua/-cosr service. And concrete is the safe pavement. Its gritty texture permits quicker, safer stops, wet or dry. And its light-colored surface reflects more light at night, providing better nighttime visibility. Mr. Motorist, your taxes will pay for building the sections of the Interstate System in this state. Insist on the best investment of your money. Insist on low-onnuol-tosf concrete-for these important roads.
