A municipality may, when it deems it advisable, improve a part of a state highway lying within the municipality, such part lying outside the limits of the area of the highway improved or proposed to be improved by the commissioner or by the county with the consent and approval or the commissioner.

In either case the municipality shall proceed in the same manner as for the making of a “local” or “general” improvement, as defined by section 40:56-1 of the title Municipalities and Counties, except that advertising for or receiving bids for the making thereof shall not be required.
