Municipalities are authorized to participate with the state and county in constructing and maintaining highways to secure an industrial site or park or to relieve related traffic congestion. The city will be responsible for the local share of the cost of such highways inside its jurisdiction. Any funds available to the city may be used for this purpose. The state Department of Transportation may use any funds not "specifically allocated by legislative action to other categories of highway construction and maintenance". T.C.A. §§ 54-5-401–406.
