Need to move utility box

Need to move utility box

I am not sure of the correct name, but I just bought a property and there is a GTE "utility box?" (looks like a 3 foot green pole) that is in the direct line of my newly planned driveway. In addition, a utility truck ran it over about 6 months ago and has never been repaired.


I don't know who owns it. I assume it is Verizon since GTE has been defunct in my area for an extremely long time.


I am not a Verizon customer so I can't "report" it. How can I get this pole moved about 4 ft?


Appreciate any assistance.

We have the same situation. There is a Verizon box that is located in an access easement that is currently unimproved but plan to install a driveway. I need to know what is required to have this moved and if there is a cost for the resident, how much to expect.

Hello abrugos,

This community is meant mainly for peer-to-peer support. You will probably need to talk to a Verizon representative to direct you to the proper department for questions about easements.
