The manholes are clearly visible on the zoomed in images for the first
location (Old County Road, San Carlos). There is a line of 3 closely
spaced manholes easily seen in the middle of the south/east bound lane -
about 100-150 feet south/east (towards Redwood City) from where Google
places this location:
If you go to Google's Street View at the second location:
There's a manhole right there. However, the TV footage shows them
accessing the lines from a manhole in the dirt along the tracks, not a
manhole in the street.
