Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - August 9, 1963, Bennington, Vermont Al least not in �?~63 no additions planned to paved roads Here just poking around or Agnes Rockwood Library notes the 18 Miles of hard surfaced roads now included in Bennington s town Highway system is a a reasonable amount one which we feel the town can adequately support a Bennington selectmen said this week. Their comment came in response to inquiries about the boards policy regarding the Black Topping of additional sections of dirt roads. The 18 Miles represents about 35 per cent of the 50-plus Miles of roads which the town Highway department services. The proportion selectmen said has been described As a pretty Rich by Ivor s. Pelsue state Highway District Engineer. Selectmen said the state figures it costs More than $600 a mile per year to maintain the hard surfaced roads. This compares to about $150 a mile per year for graded gravel roads. A mile of original hard surfacing costs Between $10,000 and $15,000 depending on the condition of the base. Selectmen eight years ago embarked on a major Black Topping program. In 1957 a a year of major Effort a six Miles of Road were Black topped. Today a selectmen among them veterans Leon r. Eldred and Richard Vansantvoord said their goal in recent years has been to a hold fast on the town tax rate in fact the general fund rate has decreased slightly in each of the last three years. Partially accounting for this has been reductions in the general fund Highway budget though these were made in part in anticipation of increased Revenue from the town Highway tax because of a larger Grant list. In any Case selectmen said hard surfacing of additional sections of Road must be justified on the basis of traffic count and settlement along the Road obviously interrelated factors. They rely on the state Highway department to determine when a level of Road activity has been reached which justifies Black Topping. They did not know the exact criteria which the department uses in its determinations but noted that traffic counts of various town roads Are taken periodically. Selectmen said no hard surfacing projects Are scheduled this summer. The Board will however include funds in the 1964 budget for Black Topping Oversea Road.
