Dear Mr. Hansford:

This is in reply to your letter dated May 12, 1972, regarding an interpretation of Section 192.111(b) (2).

Your particular question was:

Would the creation of a public bicycle path parallel to an existing transmission line designed, constructed, tested, and operated as prescribed for a Class 1 location, require either requalification or reduction of the maximum allowable operating pressure in that transmission line based on the Office of Pipeline Safety's regulations contained in Title (49), CFR Part 192.

Although a bicycle path bears some resemblance to a public highway, it differs in at number of significant aspects. Therefore, the creation of a bicycle path as you have described would not require either requalification or reduction of the maximum allowable operating pressure.

We trust that this has answered your particular question. If we can be of further assistance, please let us know.

Joseph C. Caldwell
