   (D)   The Director of Public Works and Engineering or authorized designee may vary and make exceptions to some of the design alternatives and/or modify existing requirements where there is sufficient evidence, in his/her opinion, that other design methodology will serve the same design principle and is the most suited to the site because of topographic or other conditions peculiar to the site, and that such exceptions may be made without being contrary to the intent of this chapter.
