§

3573. Railroad bridges; repairs and construction

When a railroad

corporation has constructed a railroad across a public highway by passing over

the traveled path thereof, the corporation shall keep in good and sufficient

repair and rebuild when necessary, its bridges and abutments; however,

construction of new bridges and abutments, and rebuilding and reconstruction of

existing bridges and abutments, made necessary by reason of highway improvement

incident to increased load, usage or speed of motor vehicular traffic, shall be

made by the railroad at state expense. (Added 1969, No. 76, § 4.)
