Section 1205 providing for all new construction of state highways that have a primary purpose of bypassing municipalities, the Department shall conduct an economic impact study on the affected municipalities. The study shall be conducted in addition to any study required by state or federal law. Upon completion of the study the impact shall be delivered to the governing bodies of the municipalities. Only upon a written official letter of support formally approved by the municipal governing body from a the majority of the affected municipalities, shall the construction project be added to the Department's Eight-Year Construction Work Plan.
