What's The Purpose Of These Things

I'm seeing more and more of these markings all over Decatur (this one is by the courthouse). And you'll see them all over Fort Worth. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with Oncor or some other company and underground lines, but why?

Gang activity. Not your normal street thugs either. These are you corporate Enron/Goldman Sachs/Hedge Fund/speculator type gangs. MUCH more dangerous.

The reason they mark the underground utilities is so that new underground construction in the area doesn't disrupt existing lines. If a company cut a power line to a major hospital or manufacturing facility, not gonna be cool.

Companies outsource "locating" and must usually give 48 hours notice before construction and I think have 12" error on either side.

Just in case you really wondered...

They are probably going to make some fancy pedestrian crosswalks out of brick that do nothing but close down the street for weeks at a time and then just make the road rougher.
