Found a bolted manhole cover in the middle of the woods

A few years ago, I was roaming around in the woods in the middle of nowhere, and I happened to spot the corner of what looked like concrete sticking out from under leaves and debris. After further investigation, I discovered there was a manhole cover bolted down onto a concrete platform - again, this is in the middle of the woods.
Today I went back and took pictures. I also noticed some interesting signs nearby.
Does anyone know what exactly would be underneath the manhole cover? Is there a small room? Large room? Tunnels? Would anything in there even be in use, since Bell System apparently died in like 1984? I also noticed that the one sign references American Telephone and Telegraph Company, which was dismantled in 1994.
I've been curious about this for years, so if anyone knows anything about it, I'd love to hear.

Isn't it obvious? How many more signs do you need? AT&T still exists. Buried cable still exists. AT&T was split up into several companies, but they also still exist and have merged and re merged time and again. The company's business never stopped at all.

It's not your property. Take some pretty pictures, but otherwise leave it alone.

Could be a main fiber optic line down there.

At one time when most of the infrastructure was put in place for telephone cables, there was only Bell.
They had manhole covers cast with their name on them and they can still be found all over the US.

Try calling the number. They might have more information than we would.

Quit wasting my time with this nonsense.

Dude..I want to see pictures from inside!!

Cool find, I'd explore it. Don't get zapped, especially if there is water down there.

I found a manhole in the woods some time ago too. I didn't tell anyone where is it.

I know where to hide with my family if zombie apocalypse starts. A little river and deers are at a few steps from it. Perfect.

Probably a fibre backbone. There is a backbone that crosses the country to tie all of the military bases together. There several feet deep and encased in concrete. I once had a project that crossed one. We had armed guards from the Airforce on site as long as the excavation was under way.

So what? A manhole cover is bolted in place so some Darwin Award candidate doesn't fall down it and sues AT&T.

Somewhere right now Occam is face palming..

You find a phone company man hole cover with signs that is sealed because it's no longer in use or sealed because they dont want people to fall down it and the question is what's in it?

If you only knew how many things like this there are. One thing I find kind of ironic is locally there was a big ballyhoo over a company putting in a new oil line. There was another one less than 200 yards away unbeknownst to these people, constantly pushing oil through, and the new one the company wanted to put in was just a supplement to the one that already exited.

These underground cables and pipes are far more prevalent than people think they are, they are just unaware of their existence, or they see them every day and don't even know what they are.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say telephone cables.

The sign says, "TransContinental Cable Route." Probably old hard wired cable.

I think that you should open it and investigate.
But don't be too surprised if 1 second = 1 year when you're down there! 😁👍🏻
