Linear Deficiencies by Population Groups

Exhibit 25-4 is a bar graph that shows linear deficiencies by population groups. The vertical axis measures miles from 0 to 300 in increments of 50 miles. The horizontal axis has three bars with four parts each. The first bar, for rural populations, or 182 of 243 miles, had 45 "capacity needed" miles, 30 "lane width needed" miles, 115 "pavement work needed" miles, and 55 miles where no action was needed. The second bar, for small urban populations, or 248 of 289 miles, had 140 "capacity needed" miles, 20 "lane width needed" miles, 98 "pavement work needed" miles, and 45 miles where no action was needed. And the third bar, for urbanized populations, or 550 of 690 miles, has 225 "capacity needed" miles, 60 "lane width needed" miles, 255 "pavement work needed" miles, and 140 miles where no action was needed.
