TriCoLink fiber construction has started!
National OnDemand, TriCoLink’s fiber construction contractor has started work on the St. Matthews substation (Tri-County circuit/feeder) (Moorer Rd). Fiber crews are currently placing steel strand along the pole line then returning to place the fiber optic cable against the steel strand. A lashing machine will be used to secure the fiber to the strand. In locations where the electric is underground, the fiber optic cable will be placed in a small plastic pipe underground by either boring or plowing. Asphalt and concrete driveways will be bored under and a pedestal may be placed next to a transformer or junction box to allow for a service drop. Areas of disturbance will be restored to their original state.
