(A) dirt roads cost twice as much as maintaining paved roads - comparing dirt road with maintaining
(B) dirt roads cost twice as much to maintain as paved roads do - perfect. compares cost to maintain dirt road and paved roads
(C) maintaining dirt roads costs twice as much as paved roads do - "maintaining dirt road" compared with "paved roads". It should have been - maintaining dirt roads costs twice as much as maintaining paved roads do
(D) maintaining dirt roads costs twice as much as it does for paved roads - it has no clear reference.
