To more effectually preserve the historical, archaeological, and paleontological remains
of the state, the department is authorized to enter into agreements with the appropriate
agencies of the state charged with preserving historical, archaeological, and paleontological
remains to have these agencies remove and preserve such remains disturbed or to be
disturbed by highway construction and to use highway funds, when appropriated, for
this purpose. This authority specifically extends to highways which are part of the National System
of Interstate and Defense Highways as defined in the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956,
Public Law 627, 84th Congress, and the use of state funds on a matching basis with
federal funds therein.
