They also propose to pave a stretch of road in Iowa County next year with a mixture of sand-dirt-and-asphalt. The big problem is how much traffic this new type surfacing will stand. The Mount Ayr farm- to-majrket road will probably handle 20X) vehicles a day when completed in about three weeks. Thus far the commission is thinking only in terms of farm-lo-market roads for this new type paving. Using soil near the paving site is not new in Iowa road construction. For some time a soil-cement base has been used in Iowa. In fact, the commission is using a soil-cement base on Highway 117 | between Colfax and Highway 64 at l the present time. Soil-cement is a mixture of soil, cement and water. A bituminous surface is placed on this soil-cement base to complete the pavement. Soil-cement roads are located in Washington, Muscatine, Monona, Wapello and Fremont counties. Morris said the cost of the Mount Ayr project was abput $26,000 a mile. A slab of six-inch concrete paving cost between $26,000 and $28,000. However. Morris anticipates that the cost of using soil and asphalt will be reduced con- <sirtorahlv a<; morn contractors be­ come aware of this process and it is put into a large scale operation.
