MIDLAND, Mich.--"Self-sprink- ing" gravel roads, which automati- ally draw .enough moisture from IB air to keep their surfaces firm nd dustless, constitute the latest answer of American highway engi- eers to the problems imposed by he fast-moving traffic of today. Resistance to wear, elimination of ust and low maintenance costs arc mong tbc advantages claimed foi new type of road which is rap- dly gaining in favor among the lore progressive communities. The original method of treatment nvolvecl merely a, surface applica- ion of calcium chloride which has o a high degree the property of Itracting moisture. However, a far nore satisfactory technic has been leveloped by the road engineers, f the Dow Chemical company, Mid- and, Mich. Through extensive tests ond'ucted upon a private experimental road these engineers have worked out inexpensive methods which develop a gravel road sur- ace closely approaching t h e smoothness and durability ~ of concrete. Instead of treating only the sur- ace of the road with calcium chlpr- de, they prepare a "mix" in which he calcium chloride is thoroughly distributed throughout the gravel, clay or other available road build- r.g materials. This "mix" is spread and then packed and smoothed by traffic. The calcium chloride then attracts moisture down through the entire depth of be road surface. Much of this action takes place at night when the air is at its maximum point of humidity. It has been likened to an artificially produced sprinkling of heavy clew. Different "mixes" arc required, of course, to meet varying conditions of climate, humidity and road materials. Technical assistance in building the new "self-sprinkling" roads is supplied gratis by the company to county or state road engineers who may call upon a corps of trained experts stationed throughout the United States.
