Document Description
The purpose of this Caltrans project is to install approximately 14.0 miles of broadband infrastructure necessary to connect to a third-party operated Last Mile Broadband Network to bring internet connectivity to people between Furnace Creek and the eastern entrance to Death Valley National Park in Inyo County. This project supports a middle-mile network as part of a statewide commitment to deliver 3,000 miles of broadband infrastructure within the State Highway System (SHS) in California. All work will take place within 30-feet of Caltrans right-of-way and include the installation of subsurface Broadband conduit, fiber, and vaults (approximately every 2,500 feet). The areas of project impact, in most areas, will be limited to the existing paved surfaces, disturbed shoulders, and maintained Caltrans right-of-way.
