Colored flags and markings in the street typically indicate that a line locate has been done. Line locates are used to identify water lines or other utility lines prior to work being done in that area. These types of markings in a residential area are usually an indicator that a cable or phone company will be doing some work in that area. Anyone working in the City's ROW (right-of-way) is required to have a ROW Permit on file.
