Coordination among utilities is essential where utility accesses and valve covers are to occupy highway right-of-way.
Encasement The following controls are suggested for providing encasement of pipeline crossings of the highway: • Casings should be considered for the following conditions: - Crossings of freeways, expressways, and other controlled access highways and at other locations where it is necessary to avoid trenched construction.
