Document Description
This project includes the installation of approximately 600 miles of underground, high strand count fiber-optic cable, with various spurs (distribution lines) away from main backbone, connecting to 17 prefabricated buildings (nodes) within communities along the route, and approximately 626 underground access vaults placed approximately every 4,500 to 7,500 feet. The project was expected to result in temporary loss of 379 acres of Mohave ground squirrel (Spermophilus mohavensis) and desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii) habitat and incidental take of theses species. This ITP Amendment No. 3 will reduce the number of acres impacted from the initial estimate of 379 acres to the actual final of 77.5 acres of suitable habitat.
