mitted which is inconsistent with the laws for the protection of fish

eludes projects presently under construction where road reloca-
tions or identifiable comp!ontl-nts thereof are not complete as of
the date of this section.
"(4) The term 'time of the taking' is the date of the relocation
agreement, the date of the filing of a condemnation proceeding,
or a date agreed upon between the parties as the date of taking.
"(b) Whenever, in connection with the construction of any author-
ized flood control, navigation, irrigation, or multiple-purpose project
for the dev !opment of water resources, the head of the Agency con-
cerned determines it to be in the public interest to utilize existing pub-
lic roads as a means of providing access to such projects during con-
struction, such Agency may improve, reconstruct, and maintain such
roads and may contract with the local authority having jurisdiction
over the roads to accomplish the necessary work. The accomplish-
ment of such work of improvement may be carried out with or without
obtaining any interest in the land on which the road is located in
accordance with mutual agreement between the parties: Provided,
(1) That the head of the Agency concerned determines that such work
would result in a saving in Federal cost as opposed to the cost of
providing a new access road at Federal expense, (2) that, at the com-
pletion of construction, the head of the Agency concerned will, if
necessary, restore the road to at least as good condition as prior to
the beginning of utilization for access during construction, and (3)
that, at the completion of construction, the responsibility of the
Agency for improvement, reconstruction, and maintenance shall
cease.
"(c) For water resources projects to be constructed in the future,
when the taking by the Federal Government of an existing public
road necessitates replacement, the substitute provided will, as nearly
as practicable, serve in the same manner and reasonably as well as
the existing road. The head of the Agency concerned is authorized to
construct such substitute roads to design standards comparable to
those of the State, or, where applicable State standards do not exist,
those of the owning political division in which the road is located, for
roads of the same classification as the road being replaced. The
traffic existing at the time of the taking shall be used in the deter-
mination of the classification. In any case where a State or political
subdivision thereof requests that such a substitute road be con-
structed to a higher standard than that provided in the preceding pro-
visions of this subsection, and pays, prior to commencement of such
construction, the additional costs involved due to such higher stand-
ard, such Agency head is authorized to construct such road to such
higher standard. Federal costs under the provisions of this sub-
section shall be part of the nonreimbursable project costs."
Sec. 209. The Secretary of the Army is hereby authorized and
directed to cause surveys for flood control and allied purposes, includ-
ing channel and major drainage improvements, and floods aggravated
by or due to wind or tidal effects, to be made under the direction of the
