Is it made of metal...looks like it might have some kind of blade on the bottom...or a bevel to drive something up on it. Whatever it is gigantic.

Mike, Sure wish I could discover what this thing is. Hope you are well and having a great day!

Joy, Have you had any good ideas as to what this is yet?? Yes, it taller than my car. It is gone now or I'd go back for more photos and closer examination.

Mmmm, Jean I got an idea some of the local folks might have an inkling what this thing is for, so next time you are in town you could ask them?

This "Ditch Box" is laying on its side. The blades referred to are the bottom. The hole is dug deeper and the box is pushed down using the digging equipment, such as an excavator. My guess it they had been or were going to put in some new utilities in the area.

That's just fascinating! A "ditch box"!

Yes, JGTHEMILKER, there are lot of new utilities work sites in the area! I'm so glad to discover what this is! Thanks a bunch!
