Instructions are provided to do the work and the results are documented taking into account the flexibility options of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act-A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU). Chapter/Review History The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) through an Air Management Agreement entrusts power to the State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) in Washington for approval of project development and construction management. WSDOT has the option of delegating some or all of these powers to qualified local authorities, public or federal authorities or tribal governments.
This procedure allows an authority to retain more authorisation powers at the local level for the development of FHWA-funded transport projects. WSDOT delegates this authorization through a Certification Acceptance,CA. The CA program saves a local agency time and money because the Agency has the power to develop, promote, allocate and manage its own projects.
