Found this in a parking lot gravel bed. Thoughts?

Colonial coral colony, I think.

Something like Syringopora?

Can you be a little more specific on the location? There a few parking lots around the world.

I'll go for a weathered piece of colonial coral, but maybe a couple of sharp close-ups and an idea of the location would better help our judgement.

I'm in North Texas (Grapevine) , but the location could be from just about anywhere as this was literally found in the rocked median in a church parking lot.  So gravel was trucked in from somewhere for landscaping purposes.  

 

I also found a good sized piece of petrified wood, so it was a mixed bag.

 

In what formation would you typically find colonial coral of this type?  I haven't found it in my area before...woodbine sandstone/eagle ford shale.
