The superintendent of the state highway patrol shall assign any number of state highway patrol troopers and radio operators to each turnpike project that may be provided for in any contract or contracts made pursuant to section 5503.32 of the Revised Code. The number of troopers and radio operators from time to time regularly assigned to policing turnpike projects shall be in addition to, and an enlargement of, the authorized complement of the patrol as provided in any other law or laws; provided, however, that nothing in this section shall preclude the superintendent from temporarily increasing or decreasing the troopers or radio operators so assigned, as emergencies indicate a need for shifting assignments, to the extent provided by any contracts made pursuant to section 5503.32 of the Revised Code. All such troopers and radio operators shall have the same qualifications and be appointed and paid, and receive the same benefits and provisions, as all other troopers and radio operators.
