Digital 395 Middle Mile Project

MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
The CA Broadband Cooperative, Inc. proposes to install approximately 593 miles of middle-mile fiber optic cable and associated infrastructure to provide broadband service to unserved and underserved areas of the Eastern Sierra. The project would be located between Carson City, NV and Barstow, CA. The route mainly follows U.S. 395, with various spurs that branch from the main backbone to connect the nodes within communities along the route. The cable would be installed underground within Caltrans right-of-way (ROW), County dirt roads, Nevada Department of Transportation ROW, and buildings within existing land use types zoned for utilities. The project requires no change in land use or zoning.
