To facilitate the determination of whether or not the construction, improvement and maintenance of a road is feasible from a financial standpoint, the authors worked out an outline for the investigation of all pertinent factors affecting roads. As far as the forestry and engineering world is concerned, the method of determining the economic value of a road hero described is considered absolutely new. It has been approved by the Forest Service and will be used in determining whether or not a suggested road is to be included in the national forest system, or is to be improved and maintained from forest road funds. The method is systematically and simply presented and an example is given in explanation of its application.
