  2.  Any portion or all of such reimbursements shall be made either in the form of additional roads or in cash at the election of the authorities of the county or political subdivision to which reimbursement may be due.  If said authorities elect to have any reimbursement made in the form of additional roads, such roads shall be constructed in such county or political subdivision under the supervision and direction of the commission and shall connect with the system of state highways; or, all or part of said sum may be used to construct a state highway of a higher type than that proposed by the commission.  Any reimbursement which the authorities of a county or political subdivision elect to have made in cash may be used for the purchase of rights-of-way for state highways within such county or political subdivision.

  3.  When the commission takes over a road, to the construction of which more than one county or political subdivision has contributed, any reimbursement shall be divided among said counties or subdivisions in the same proportion as such counties or subdivisions contributed to said construction.
