In the event it is necessary in the construction, use, or maintenance of a joint bridge to establish, alter, narrow, change the grade, or vacate a part or all of any public highway, the board of county commissioners of a county may, by resolution, declare such necessity and its intention to make such highway modifications or alterations, and provide in the resolution the manner in which the alterations or changes are to be made, the approximate cost so far as the county is concerned, the land or other property it is necessary to appropriate, how the cost of such alterations or changes is to be apportioned between the county and railroad or union depot company, and by whom the work of construction is to be done.
