There shall be only a single pole line on the trunk highway right-of-way on either side of the center line thereof, unless otherwise authorized in the special provisions of the permit for construction.
Longitudinal installations on noninterstate trunk highways shall normally be located in the outer five feet of the right-of-way. At crossings of the noninterstate trunk highway, poles shall be placed at a minimum of 30 feet from the shoulder lines of the through roadbeds unless right-of-way widths are prohibitive to such location.
Unless clearly indicated on the permit for construction sketch, the location of all brace poles, anchors, and anchor poles within the limits of the trunk highway right-of-way shall be approved by the district engineer or an authorized representative prior to actual installation.
In those instances in which a utility is issued a permit or permits for construction on both sides of the trunk highway right-of-way in a given area, such permit is conditioned upon the utility subsequently providing joint use to other utilities upon reasonable terms mutually agreeable to the utilities.
