1902 Today is the second day of the 3-day Greenville Good Roads Exposition in Michigan, sponsored by the State Highway Committee, the Montcalm County Road Makers Association, OPRI, and ARMA. Planned by Horatio S. Earle of the State Highway Committee, the exposition attracts over 25,000 people. Today, Director Martin Dodge addresses the convention on "Government Co-operation in Object-Lesson Road Work." In discussing object-lesson roads in 1900 and 1901, he says, "In all of these cases the co-operation has been very hearty on the part of the state, the county, the municipality in which the work has been done, and the results have been very satisfactory and beneficial."
