Mr. Olin L. Greene, Director

State of Florida
Tallahassee, FL  32304

Dear Mr. Greene:

Thank you for your letter of November 15, 1974, asking whether in 49 CFR 192.11(a) the language "any portion of which is located in a public place (such as a highway)" refers only to publicly owned rights-of-way or property.

The term "public place" in Section 192.11(a) means a place which is generally open to all persons in a community as opposed to being restricted to specific persons.  We consider churches, schools, and commercial buildings as well as any publicly owned right-of-way or property which is frequented by persons to be public places under Section 192.11.(a).

We appreciate your interest in pipeline safety.


Joseph C. Caldwell
