Construction crews with Excel Utility Contractors and their subcontractors are hard at work on the Pella Fiber network!
The equipment shown in this photo is a directional boring machine (manufactured by Pella’s own Vermeer!). This machine pushes its way underground from one place to another, then pulls back an orange conduit that will later be filled with fiber cables.
Initial work began this week and is concentrated in Zones 7 and 8 on the north side of the city. But as crews ramp up operation you’ll start to see workers in all parts of town. Please be careful when driving in construction areas and give the workers plenty of space to do their job.
City Hall is now open so feel free to stop by if you have any questions about the project, or if you would like to sign up to get FIBER READY!
