At this rate it would probably take 16 to 20 years to complete the program, at which time the chances are that most of the system will again be obsolete and inadequate. TAt the present rate of improvement there is little chance that we will ever have a complete and adequate main highway system. THE PLAN Highway users generally agree that this work should be completed as soon as possible. If money were made available through borrowing, it has been estimated that the Kentucky highway engineering and construction industries could complete the work at the rate of $40 to $50 million a year, finish the whole job in 4 to 5 years, and permit the state to enjoy full economic, industrial, social, tourist, education and agricultural development that a first class, adequate highway transportation system would make possible. TOTAJL $162,811,943 This borrowing could be of two types, 30 state and federally marked highways revenue bonds with tax revenues earned .by these roads pledged for their repayment, or are included in this system. The estimated required expenditure bonds of the state, with the credit of the state ranges from a minimum of $300,725 on U. S pledged for their repayment.
