In addition to the powers now vested in the State Highway Commissioner for the acquisition of lands by virtue of any statute, he shall have power to enter into a co-operative agreement with any municipal housing authority or redevelopment agency relating to the acquisition and clearance, and the equitable sharing of the costs of such acquisition and clearance, of property deemed necessary for the effectuation of any of the purposes of this act which lies within the municipality in which such authority or agency was created and within or immediately adjacent to a blighted or urban redevelopment area, as defined in the Local Housing Authorities Law being chapter 14A of Title 55 added to the Revised Statutes by P.L.1938, c. 19 or in the Redevelopment Agencies Law, P.L.1949, c. 306, C. 40:55C-1 etc. When the acquisition of such property as is deemed necessary for highway purposes would result in consequential damages to the owners remaining property and all or a portion of such remaining property lies within a blighted or urban redevelopment area in a municipality, the commissioner may acquire such remaining property and transfer the same to the municipal housing authority or redevelopment agency upon payment by the municipality to the State, pursuant to the terms of a co-operative agreement as herein authorized, of an equitable share of the cost of the acquisition of such property and the clearance thereof where such clearance is deemed necessary or appropriate by the commissioner. Such co-operative agreements may also provide for the acquisition and clearance of such property, necessary for highway purposes, by the municipal housing authority or redevelopment agency and the transfer thereof to the State upon payment by the State to the municipality of an equitable share of the cost of such acquisition, and clearance, if any.
