When the machines are taggers:

I have been walking by this mysterious sidewalk sigil for a few years, and I keep thinking that it would have made an excellent early 90s industrial album cover. The band would have been awful but with nice design.

    Some sort of street MOSFET?

    The slight space before "119" makes me think of fac-501 (though the images there aren't what I remember).

    I disagree. This is clearly the album cover of an early 90's prog rock band.

    I've been had admiration for the widespread work of the street tagger "Locate" for many years.

    "USA" on sidewalk means "Universal Service Access"

      You mean USA painted white? That stands for Underground Service Advisory. It is used to mark the bounds of a groundwork project. Later service locators from pg&e, telephone, water, etc. come by and mark where their wires and pipes are located in different colors so diggers can avoid them.

      The above markings are a survey control point.
