Verizon will be installing fiber optic cables and associated equipment at Addison and Racine in the coming weeks starting Wednesday November 7, 2018. These improvements will enhance the speed and dependability of wireless communications in the area.
Type of Construction:
The fiber optic cables will be installed underground (within right-of-ways) using directional boring, in order to minimize damage to the right-of-ways as well as some open cut trenching. There will also be installation of two (2) communication manholes, one (1) quazite box and the replacement of a light pole and foundation. After installation, splicing will be performed to complete the project. In the event that pedestrian or vehicle traffic needs to be altered to accommodate construction equipment, barriers and signage will be installed to ensure the safety of those in the area.
Any disturbed areas will receive an immediate temporary restoration solution, with a permanent restoration to previous or better condition to be performed later.
Construction will start in the side walk at the south west corner of W Addison St and N Racine Ave and continue in the side walk to the first alley south of W Addison St. From there we will head west in the alley until terminating at N Lakewood Ave. Our installation crews will make every effort to maintain alley and garage access at all times during the project.
No parking signs will be posted along the following boundaries and will be in affect during construction hours:
- 3450-3605 N Racine Ave – East and West side
- 1154-1225 W Addison – North and South side
- 3552-3539 N Lake wood Ave – East side
9:00 am till 4:00 pm (Monday through Friday)
