Does MUNI use Eminent domain?

I’m sitting here at 4th and Market on the 3rd floor of the Virgin Megastore (across the street from the Apple store) looking out into the intersection when a MUNI buss drives by. All of a sudden I realize the impressive lattice that covers the street.

Its like a huge robotic spider from the future decided to spin a web in the intersection in order to catch motorcycles and pedestrians not paying attention.

I then noticed that some of the cables actually attach to private property.

How’d they get permission to do that? Eminent domain?
