Dear Mr. Lewis:

This is in reference to our acceptance letter SS-65A dated June 20, 1997, regarding the POZ-LOC Slip base System and the POZ-LOC Yielding Anchor System. Your letter of July 16, 1997, requested that we remove the reference to proprietary materials, because the drawings are public information and anyone can make the same system.

With this letter, numbered SS-65B, we wish to reiterate that the POZ-LOC slip base and POZ-LOC yielding anchor systems are acceptable for use on the National Highway System when requested by a State and state that they are not subject to the requirements associated with proprietary products.

We apologize for any inconvenience this erroneous reference may have caused.

Sincerely yours,

Dwight A. Horne
Chief, Federal Aid and Design Division
