|(a) Designation of department delegate. For each class
of transportation project under Subchapter D of this chapter (relating
to Requirements for Classes of Projects), the department's executive
director will designate the department district division, or other
operational unit of the department that has the authority to review
and approve on the department's behalf work conducted under this chapter,
including an environmental review document. The executive director
may designate exceptions to any delegation made under this section
for specific projects or types of projects.
(b) Dual roles permitted. The department's executive
director may designate a district or division as both the project
sponsor and the department delegate for a project. If a district or
division has both of those roles and this chapter requires the project
sponsor to submit a document to the department delegate, the district
or division will place documentation in the project file showing completion
of the task by the date specified.
