The following answers are provided to the three questions addressed in your letter:
In addition to the questions addressed in your letter, you also expressed your preference that a new Part be developed within the MUTCD addressing urbanization issues. We will keep that in mind and we certainly appreciate your offer to work with us towards this new Part. For record-keeping purposes, we have assigned the following official ruling number to your request for interpretation: "I-44(Intr.)—Applicability of MUTCD to Private Property Open to Public Travel." Please refer to this number in future correspondence.
