The rehabilitative work may be done by department or municipal forces, or by contract, as the parties shall agree. If the work is to be performed by the department or its contractors, the highway or road transfer shall not be effective until all agreed upon rehabilitative work has been completed. (b) Funding.--All restoration work shall be paid from the State Highway Transfer Restoration Restricted Account within the Motor License Fund, provided, however, that the department may in its discretion pay for any or all such work to be performed by the department or its contractors from funds made available to the county maintenance districts under section 9102 (relating to distribution of State highway maintenance funds).
