  • What's your best guess:

    I was talking with one of my best friends over the weekend. He is the senior estimator for one of the largest electrical contractors in Arizona. We were talking this weekend about gas lines being run through sewer lines when he tells me about this story.

    A few years back they were excavating in Phoenix to run new underground electrical lines. They started running into some kind of foundation under ground. His guys being well trained stopped immediately and called out the bosses, who in turn called out Dig-Alert. With everyone out looking at the pit, Dig-Alert swore up and down that there was nothing down there. There guys, gently digging with a back hoe were hitting something. Finally Dig-ALert said, yeah it looks like there is something down there, but its not showing up on any of our infrastructure maps and our equipment is not detecting it.

    So let's have everyones best guess what it was?

                        G3 already said fallout shelter. That was my guess. Now I'm going with Blackbeard's buried treasure.

                          Street car tracks? Underground casement for governmental communications lines? Redwood water line?
                          That's what we've found in downtown Phoenix.
