Paving Industry Competition in Arkansas

Healthy markets require robust competition. The paving materials market, however, has relatively little competition between industries. MIT has found that this inflates paving material unit costs. In Arkansas, findings suggest that increasing competition between paving material industries lowers paving unit costs for both asphalt (AC) and concrete (PCC)— which could result in significant savings for both departments of transportation (DOTs) and taxpayers.
