How many miles of road are paved or unpaved?
You might not be surprised to know that most of the 4.09 million miles of roadway are paved — but what might surprise you is that over a third — almost 35% — are not. These are typically unpaved gravel or dirt roads, and they’re mostly located throughout rural areas and communities.
How many miles of gravel roads are there?
More so than asphalt, gravel and dirt roads have to be regularly maintained. Somewhere between three and five times per year, gravel roads need to be graded, which evens out their surface and prevents rutting and erosion. That comes out to between five and six million miles of grading annually. Quite the project.
