The modernization and the construction of arterial highways where are to pass through
cities, will contribute greatly to post-war reemployment and to the stimulation of
industrial recovery. The resources and the technical skills that are available to the state for these
purposes, should be used for the benefit of the cities upon the principle that the
construction of such arterial highways is a matter of state concern. However, it is the manifest intention of the state to recognize and to preserve
the powers or rights heretofore conferred upon or delegated to any city to regulate
the property, affairs or government thereof, in the modernization and the construction
of such arterial highways. The integration of such arterial highways in the system of state highways throughout
the state contemplates an expenditure of public funds to pay the costs that are attendant
upon the fulfilment of a program of the work of modernization and construction as
herein mentioned, as well as of the maintenance of such public ways. It is hereby declared to be the purpose of this act to initiate the procedure that
is prerequisite to any project of the magnitude herein provided, to the end that orderly
progress and equitable distribution of effort and moneys may be observed in the administration
of this article, and, from time to time, when expressly authorized by the legislature,
any section of such arterial highways may be constituted, constructed, reconstructed,
improved and maintained as a part of the state highway system.
