Document Description
Caltrans plans to issue a highway encroachment permit to Frontier Communications for a fiber optic cable connection that will require trenching and boring under US Hwy 395.

Aerial cables will be placed by accessing poles from the roadway using a bucket truck. A horizontal directional drill will be used to install the buried cable. Approximately 276 square feet of soil disturbance will occur at 3 bore pits and 1 handhole.
