The trench will be about 2 ft wide, by 4 ft deep. The excavations for the boxes will measure approx 4 ft long x 4ft wide x 4ft deep. About 3 cy of material will be excavated at each milepost. Once the trench is complete, a new 24 count fiber optic cable will be placed in the trench from MP 93.37L to MP 92.97L and the cable will be spliced at each end. Once the work is complete, all excavated areas will be backfilled and compacted.
