  Section 1. The transportation law is amended by adding a  new  section
14-n to read as follows:

THIS SECTION, UNLESS OTHERWISE EXPRESSLY STATED, OR UNLESS  THE  CONTEXT
OR SUBJECT MATTER OTHERWISE REQUIRES, THE TERM "BARRIER WALL" SHALL MEAN
AN  EXTERIOR,  NON-POROUS  STRUCTURE,  ERECTED  FOR THE PURPOSE OF NOISE
REDUCTION ALONG ROADWAYS AND/OR THE PREVENTION OF ROADWAY FLOODING.
  2. AT REGULAR INTERVALS, AT LEAST TWICE ANNUALLY, THE COMMISSIONER  OR
HIS  OR  HER  DESIGNEE,  SHALL  INSPECT ALL BARRIER WALLS ERECTED BY THE
DEPARTMENT PURSUANT TO THIS CHAPTER. SUCH INSPECTION SHALL INCLUDE, AT A
MINIMUM, AN ANALYTICAL EVALUATION OF THE IMPACT OF SIGNIFICANT  FLOODING

  3.  AFTER  SUCH  INSPECTION, THE COMMISSIONER SHALL TAKE ALL NECESSARY
MEASURES TO MITIGATE THE IMPACT OF SIGNIFICANT FLOODING  TO  SURROUNDING
RESIDENTIAL  AND  COMMERCIAL AREAS AND SHALL CAUSE ALL NECESSARY REPAIRS
TO BE MADE TO SUCH BARRIER WALLS TO AVOID FURTHER DAMAGE.
  S 2. This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day  after  it  shall
