Cell tower modified to comply with historic viewshed

This proposed 300-foot self-supporting tower impacted a regulated viewshed. A permit was required. Our team coordinated with the State Historic Preservation Office. We agreed to custom design the top 50 feet of the tower making it narrower and less visible. Our refined design did not compromise its operational efficiency. With SHPO acceptance, the project moved forward on schedule.
