CHAPTER 7 - Otay Mesa East Toll Facility Act

(c) SANDAG may utilize the following alternative project delivery methods if the conditions in this section are met:
(2) Design sequencing.
(d) If the conditions in this section for utilizing an alternative delivery method are not met, SANDAG shall use the design-bid-build delivery method for construction of a project.
