(a)  The Department of Transportation may assist the individual counties in the construction of roads to serve county supervised landfills by either participating with the financing, by doing the construction on a 100 percent reimbursable basis or by assuming the total construction cost after it has been determined to what degree that secondary road improvement funds allocated to that county may be available.  The construction cost of the road to serve the landfill must be of a reasonable nature when compared to the total needs of the county as well as available funds.  The road shall become a part of the state maintained system and a right of way width to be determined by the Department of Transportation must be dedicated to the Department of Transportation at no cost and the division of highways must be allowed to utilize the landfill for dumping purposes free of charge.

(b)  The initiation of such a project shall be by a resolution from the board of county commissioners recommending the use of county allocated funds to partially or totally fund the road.  The resolution must also state that the Division of Highways can utilize the landfill.
