In Georgia, the Concrete Road Less Traveled

Georgia’s concrete paving companies aren’t inefficient, but they have been overlooked, writes Benita Dodd, vice president of the Georgia Public Policy Foundation. "Working to overcome decades in second place is like turning a tanker," she writes. "The state has the nation’s 10th-largest transportation system, 121,000 miles of road altogether. That’s about 18,000 centerline miles (48,000 lane miles) of state routes; about 85,000 centerline miles of county roads and 17,000 centerline miles of city streets, according to the state Department of Transportation. Ninety-five percent of the state’s roads are paved with asphalt."
