Electrical Conduit Construction (ECC) will be installing fiber optic cables and associated equipment on behalf of Wide Open West (WOW) on Belmont from the alley east of Halsted to the southwest corner of Clark and Belmont. 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 and the installation of one manhole structure. After installation, splicing of wires/lines 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, with a permanent restoration to previous or better condition to be performed later.
Construction will start in the alley east of N. Halsted and continue west on to W. Belmont, through the N. Halsted and W. Belmont intersection, into the south sidewalk of W. Belmont to the southwest corner of W. Belmont and N. Clark. While crews are working in the south sidewalk, pedestrians will be directed to use the north sidewalk of W. Belmont at N. Halsted and N. Clark to travel east and west on W. Belmont.
