1430.  For the purposes of this article, "subway" includes tube or
tunnel.


1431.  Whenever in the interests of commerce, for the benefit of the
residents of the county, or for the purpose of expediting travel
between points on opposite sides of any navigable body of water, the
board of supervisors of any county finds it advisable to construct
for the public use any subway under any such navigable body of water,
at a location determined upon by the board, the board shall call an
election and submit to the electors of the county the question
whether bonds of the county will be issued and sold for the purpose
of constructing such a subway.



1432.  The order calling such an election shall be valid and
effectual when signed by two-thirds of the members of the board. The
election shall be held and the bonds issued in accordance with the
provisions of law governing county bond elections and the issuance of
county bonds.



1433.  The board of supervisors of any county may, for the purpose
of ascertaining the probable expense of any proposed subway, expend
out of the county general fund a sum not exceeding thirty-five
hundred dollars. When any such proposed subway reaches partly into
one county and partly into another, such counties shall equally
divide the expenditure necessary to ascertain the probable expense of
any such proposed subway, but such expenditure shall not exceed in
the aggregate the sum of thirty-five hundred dollars.



1434.  Whenever any such subway is proposed to be constructed under
any navigable body of water forming the dividing line between
counties, the boards of supervisors of each of the counties into
which any such subway will reach shall first agree as to what
portions of the expense of such subway will be paid by each county.
Thereafter the board of each county may take the proceedings it
considers proper under the provisions of this article.



1435.  Such a subway shall not be constructed under any navigable
body of water forming the dividing line between counties, unless all
the counties into which such subway reaches first authorize such work
and also authorize the issue of bonds therefor in the manner
provided in this article.



1436.  Whenever any such proposed subway will reach within the
limits of any city, if the governing body of each such city and the
board of supervisors of the county in which each such city is
situated first so agree, the board of supervisors may call an
election and submit to the electors of the county, in the manner
provided in this article, the question whether bonds of the county
will be issued and sold for the purpose of constructing such a subway
in the manner prescribed in this article.
