FIBRE-OPTIC LINE ALONG RAIL TRAIL UPDATE
MAY 13TH UPDATE – Do you have a waterline, cable or other piping that goes under the Slocan Valley Rail Trail? The Columbia Basin Broadband Corp. will be beginning the process of laying the fibre-optic line along the Rail Trail shortly.
Right now they are trying to identify all the locations where they potentially may come across a line. They will be digging a narrow trench 18″ deep. Most lines are deeper than that and it won’t be an issue. They will be reaching out to adjoining landowners, but we want to make sure no one is missed and that there are no surprises for anyone! If you think you fall into this category, please PM us. Do NOT post your details on this post, thanks.
The process of cable installation may take up to two months. Initially they may be hopping all over the place, prepping sites to link cable segment before they drop in the line.
We are hoping disruption will be minimal, but there may be brief periods when the Trail will be closed to traffic.
We will be trying our best to keep this FB page and our website up to date. Thanks for your understanding
