Commencing at an existing Zayo handhole located on the eastern side of the intersection of Holland Lane and Ballenger Avenue, open trench and install 22-feet of conduit to an existing City of Alexandria handhole also located on the eastern side of the intersection of Holland Lane and Ballenger Avenue.
