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:

37°29'44.00"N 122°14'44.31"W

If you go to Google's Street View at the second location:

37°29'44.00"N 122°14'44.31"W

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.
