Verizon is proposing to put telecom antennas on 12 Dominion utility poles in Mason District, mostly in the Lincolnia area, and several more in the City of Alexandria.
Verizon would replace existing utility poles with new ones that would be about five to seven feet taller, Ed Donohue, of Donohue & Stearns PLC, told the Mason District Land Use Committee (MDLUC) March 29. A utility box would be attached to the side of the pole.
The proposed antennas would be close to these addresses in Mason District: 4116 Braddock Road (next to Parklawn Elementary School), 4501 Braddock Road, 6264 and 6355 Lincolnia Road, 6321 Oak Ridge Drive, 6404 Pima St., 4902 Beauregard St., 4920 Fran Place, 6481 Little River Turnpike, 6524 Montrose St., 4201 Summit Place, and the intersection of Edsall Road and Indian Run Parkway.
The MDLUC tentatively endorsed the proposal, which must now be approved by the Fairfax County Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors before it can be implemented. A date for a Planning Commission hearing hasn’t been set.
