Matches, MS 39120

Dear Mr. Logan:

This responds to your letter of October 10, 1974, advising that a paved road will be constructed 110 feet above a buried gas transmission line without disturbing the line. You ask what effect the construction will have on the pipeline respecting requirements for (1) encasement, (2) class location, and (3) operating pressure in 49 CFR Part 192.

Because the existing pipeline will not be replaced, relocated or otherwise changed due to construction of the road, the Federal gas pipeline safety standards concerning encasement would not apply. The class location of the pipeline as determined by 49 CFR 192.5 would not be changed as a result of the construction. Because operating pressure is related to class location under the Federal standards, there would be no change in allowable operating pressure.

We trust this satisfactorily responds to your inquiry.
