Abstract:

The highway construction program is investigated to outline its development from a low-level nation building effort under USAID to a fully coordinated program involving US contractors, SEABEES, Army engineers, ARVN engineers, other allies, and local contractors. The control of the program in Vietnam is followed as it progressed from USAID to the Construction Directorate, MACV. The basic LOC funding decision in Washington is covered. The construction agencies are enumerated but detailed work assignments are not. The principal accomplishments of the LOC Program are discussed.
