Nov. 26 (UPI) -- All eyes were on Dallas last week for the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination and the city decided to prepare accordingly.

While prepping for the remembrance ceremony that was held on Friday, the X marks on Elm Street that indicated the locations where JFK was shot were removed from the ground and the road was repaved.

People who were upset that the marks had disappeared no longer have to be upset -- they’re coming back.

Sometime late Monday night or early Tuesday morning, an X was returned to its position in front of the old School Book Depository at Dealey Plaza.

It was most likely the work of a private citizen as the marks were never painted by Dallas and the city claims not to know who routinely places them on the road.

Here’s a video about the removal of the X marks last week:
