1. When the department, for the purpose of establishing, constructing, or maintaining any primary road, determines that any secondary road or portion thereof is necessary for a detour or haul road, the department, after consultation with the county board of supervisors having jurisdiction of the route, shall by order temporarily designate the secondary road or portion thereof as a temporary primary road detour or as a temporary primary road haul road, and the department shall maintain the same as a primary road until it shall revoke the temporary designation order. Prior to use of a secondary road as a primary road haul road or detour, the department shall designate a representative to inspect the secondary road with the county engineer to determine and note the condition of the road.
2. Prior to revoking the designation, the department shall:
a. Restore the secondary road or portion thereof to as good condition as it was prior to its designation as a temporary primary road, or
b. Determine such amount as will adequately compensate the county exercising exclusive or concurrent jurisdiction over the secondary road or portion thereof for excessive traffic upon the secondary road or portion thereof during the period of its designation as a temporary primary road. The department shall certify the amount determined to the director of the department of administrative services. The director of the department of administrative services shall credit the amount to the county.
3. If on examination of the route, it is determined that the road can be restored to its original condition only by reconstruction, the department shall cause plans to be drawn, award the necessary contracts for work and proceed to reconstruct and make payments for in the same manner as is prescribed for primary construction projects.
