The Department of Transportation shall expend fifty percent (50%) of the funds allocated to the paving of unpaved secondary roads for the paving of unpaved secondary roads based on a statewide prioritization.

The Department shall pave the eligible unpaved secondary roads that receive the highest priority ranking within this statewide prioritization.

The Highway Trust Fund shall not be used to fund the paving of unpaved secondary roads.
