The way roads are done in the U.S.:
1.) Award contract to the lowest bidder.
2.) Lowest bidder was the lowest bidder because they plan on using substandard materials.
3.) Resulting road falls apart in 4-5 years (or less).
4.) Go to 1.
There is no desire or advantage to build roads that don't need to be rebuilt very few years. The Free Market(TM) and your (and my) tax dollars at work. Everybody wins (road contractors, car dealers, repair shops, etc.) but the people who have to drive on the crappy roads.
