Section 11-49B-16

Use of public roads.

Each authority is hereby authorized to use the rights-of-way of all public roads in the authorizing county without securing the prior approval of the state, its agencies, departments, or the governing body of the authorizing county and subject only to the necessity of obtaining the municipal consent required by Section 220 of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901. This chapter shall not be construed to exempt any authority from the requirements of Section 23-1-4. The authority shall have the duty to restore at its expense all roads, highways, and public rights-of-way in which it may have made excavations or done other work in constructing a transit system or performing any of its other corporate functions.
