The Road as a Structure

THE average man would probably say tha ta road is not a structure, but indeed it is a very complex one. In all forms of structural engineering where the engineer is concerned to overcome the forces of nature, his problem commences at the bottom, whether the structure is a bridge, a road, or a skyscraper. The security and permanence of his foundations control the life of the structure, and in no form of engineering is this truer than in the building of a highway. H.E. Brooke-Bradley
