New Cell Tower? Yamato at Boca Shores

20140522-104642.jpg
A reader tipped us off to a new cell tower being deployed inside the Kimberly Substation on the north end of South County Regional Park. The tower is up with equipment to follow.
A few work trucks were scattered around the intersection in front of Boca Shores and the park’s Yamato exit.

20140522-104948.jpg
Here’s a panorama view looking south from the Boca Shores entrance:

And this shot, also from the Boca Shores side, shoes a couple workers and a small utility area marked off.

20140522-105331.jpg
Our tipster was curious which cell phone company might be involved. We asked but no one there could tell us. However, one if the guys had an AT&T logo on his shirt. Maybe that’s just a coincidence.
The Kimberly Substation is one of those critical pieces of infrastructure that most of tend not to notice.

20140522-105447.jpg
But of course, those looking for a secluded place to drink some beers and then discard the refuse know it’s there.
