Utility companys are often good to work with once you get to the "right person". I had a situation on a logging job a couple years ago where the gas company wouldn't let us cross or haul the landowner's timber out along the gas line rights-of-way.

They said that the pipeline was only 3 feet deep and our heavy truck weights would damage their pipe. The landowner had the right to use the rights-of-way. Also, their pipelines are suppose to be a minimum of 5 feet deep. At least that is what they say when they install them. After a couple days of "what to do" and an upset landowner, I got in contact with discussed the situation with the gasline superindendent of maintenance.

Once he was aware of the situation, he had a foot of gravel placed over the line for our crossing and agreed to where we could run along it the line. The gas company also put up a gate at the entrance from the county road with a duel locking system for them and the landowner.

All worked out well and we actually improved relationships with the gas company and
we completed the timber harvest without further incident.

Jeff,

Way to go.  Like the fence, gate,  and your approach.  I've used this same approach before and I must say it's almost always had better results than asking questions or for permission first.  Always remember.... "To seek permission is to seek denial".  I wouldn't have done this any different.

I was thinking, just for fun, I might make up a sign like this to put on the back side of my fence. ;D

Jeff,

That works too.  I like it.  The only word I might add be the word "Now" right after "Out"

I think those go beyond what I would want.  Those look like something I would put up if I was worried about getting caught doing something.
