Why have various markers and protective barriers been placed in some yards around trees, etc.?

For most of the residential streets in the City of Houston, the right-of-way extends about 16 feet into yards from the back of the curb. As a result, the City of Houston and the contractors are granted full access into this right-of-way for this and any related projects.  Once complete, the City is required to restore the disturbed areas to City of Houston standards.

Both the City of Houston and the contractor are taking precaution to protect existing trees as best as they can. In addition, right-of-way markers, private utility markers, and construction staking are going to be placed in yards.  They let the contractor know what utility is there and where they need to build in accordance with the plans.  Removal of these markers causes added delays and expense for the contractor.  Please do not remove these markers or any projective precautions that have been provided in your yard.
