What to expect during construction
- Step 1
Be on the lookout for the construction information we send to neighborhoods before we begin. This is typically a letter or postcard. We’ll also place door hangers or similar just before construction starts on your street.
- Step 2
A utility marking service will mark out underground utilities (water, gas, electric) with paint or locate flags in and near the public right-of-way.
- Step 3
We build in the public right-of-way wherever possible. Construction zones will be clearly marked by temporary no parking signage. This signage includes the exact timing for construction. We work hard to minimize the impact but both foot and road traffic may be impacted temporarily while our teams work.
- Step 4
We install handholes where fiber can be branched out to connect individual homes every couple of houses. These handholes look very much like the access hatch you might find in a lawn irrigation system, with a lid that sits flush to the ground.
Construction typically lasts a couple of days in front of your home and we do everything we can to minimize the impact.
