Public utilities and entities authorized under section 2301 to construct lines may, in any municipality, place their pipes and appurtenances, wires and cables and all conduits and other structures for conducting and maintaining the pipes, wires and cables under the surface of those streets and highways in which the utilities or entities are authorized to obtain locations for their pipes and appurtenances, poles and wires, subject to the written permit of the licensing authority, as defined in section 2502 and subject to such rules as to location and construction as the municipal officers or the Department of Transportation may designate in their permit.
