(a) That public funds for construction of a free expressway are not available;

(b) that the construction of a toll expressway can be financed solely or partly through the investment of private funds in toll road revenue bonds; and

(c) that the project and indebtedness incurred therefor can be financed solely or partly through tolls and other income from operation of the project.
