Sec. 11.5. (a) This section governs a proposal that requires review by the division potentially under both 16 U.S.C. 470f and IC 14-21-1-18.
(b) A person may submit a proposal to the division for a project that is subject to review by the division under 16 U.S.C. 470f and IC 14-21-1-18.
(c) A person that wishes to make a submission under this section must provide a transmittal letter to the division with "Dual Review Project" in the subject line.
(d) Upon receipt of a transmittal letter, the division shall conduct a review that satisfies both:
(1) 16 U.S.C. 470f and 36 CFR 800; and
(e) As soon as practicable, the division shall acknowledge to the person its receipt of the transmittal letter. The acknowledgment shall state the division would review the information submitted under the authorities referenced in subsection (d). In addition to any notification required under 16 U.S.C. 470f and 36 CFR 800, the division shall provide notification of the dual review to the following:
(1) Interested persons.
(2) Members of the review board.
(3) By posting on the division's website.
(f) If a submission under this section results in a finding under 36 CFR 800 of no historic properties affected or no adverse effect on historic properties, and the Indiana state historic preservation officer concurs in the finding, the division director shall issue a letter of clearance for the project under this rule.
(g) If a submission under this section results in a finding of adverse effect on historic properties under 36 CFR 800, and a memorandum of agreement is executed under 36 CFR 800, the division director shall consider the terms of the memorandum of agreement. If the division director concludes the objectives and purposes of IC 14-21-1-18 have been achieved, the division director shall issue a letter of clearance under this rule and exempt the person from obtaining a certificate of approval under IC 14-21-1-18 concurrently with the execution of the memorandum of agreement.

(h) If a dual review initiated under this section results in a finding of adverse effect on historic properties under 36 CFR 800, but a memorandum of agreement is not executed, the person making the submission shall obtain a certificate of approval regarding the project from the review board under section 13 of this rule before taking action that would alter the historic significance or character of the site.
(i) If the Indiana department of transportation makes a submission for a project involving a bridge covered by the July 17, 2006 "Programmatic Agreement Among the Federal Highway Administration, the Indiana Department of Transportation, the Indiana State Historic Preservation Office, and the Advisory Council for Historic Preservation Regarding the Management and Preservation of Indiana's Historic Bridges", and a finding of adverse effect on historic properties results under 36 CFR 800, the division director shall consider the mitigations prescribed for the adverse effects under the Programmatic Agreement. If the division director concludes the objectives and purposes of IC 14-21-1-18 are achieved, the division director shall issue a letter of clearance under this rule and exempt the person from obtaining a certificate of approval under IC 14-21-1-18.
