Lyme consists of a concrete equipment building and a 130 ft. (40M) steel lattice tower. The tower holds two pairs of Western Electric KS-15676 horn-reflector antennas.
Lyme was an auxiliary (relay) station linking Durham and New London, probably placed in service between 1965 and 1970. An October 1965 Long Lines map shows the Lyme route as "planned construction" for telephone traffic, while a 1970 map shows the route as being in operation. Lyme's microwave license was canceled in May of 1999, probably due to the installation of a fiber-optic cable to handle the route's traffic.
