§  17.  Public  hearings.  To give the public an opportunity to become  fully acquainted with proposed highway projects and to express its views  on the social,  economic  and  environmental  effects  of  the  proposed  facilities,  the  commissioner of transportation, as he deems necessary,  shall hold a public hearing or hearings, or offer  the  opportunity  for  such  hearing  or  hearings  in  order  to  consider the various highway  locations or corridors and designs deemed feasible by  the  commissioner  of  transportation  for  the  construction  or  reconstruction  at a new  location of any highway heretofore or hereafter authorized  pursuant  to  the  provisions  of this chapter or any other general or special law, or  extensions of such highways, notwithstanding the fact that a  particular  highway location or corridor may be specified by law. Provided, however,  that  nothing herein shall be construed to authorize construction of any  highway  in  a  location  or  corridor  different  from  that  which  is  authorized  pursuant  to  the  provisions  of  this chapter or any other  general or special law, or to require construction of any highway  in  a  location  or  corridor  so authorized if, after such hearing or hearings  and based on all the evidence available to him, the  commissioner  finds  such  location  or  corridor  not  feasible.  Prior  to  such hearing or  hearings, the commissioner of transportation  shall  consider  and  make  available  to  the  public the various locations or corridors and design  alternates which he deems feasible.
