Making a road requires eminent domain.  As far as I know, that means you need a state of some kind.

Building a road requires that the property be owned by whatever agency that intends to build it.  Eminent domain is only a legal process established by governments in order to short cut the difficulties of aquiring said property.  Again, many private roads and highways have been built in America in the past; even though most of them have been taken as public property, they were still built privately. 

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'
