similar  design  and/or  materials  as determined by the commissioner of
transportation.
  The study shall provide the following determinations:
  (a) a review and reporting of the location of such guardrails current-
ly in use on local roads and highways throughout the state; and

appropriate for use in such locality.
  §  2. On or before January 1, 2018, the commissioner of transportation
