Document Description
The Folsom Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Master Plan Project would upgrade the Fiber Communications Network throughout the City of Folsom (City). The project would include signal improvements that are typically swift installs on existing communications infrastructure, with minimal disruption to the community, and near-term cost-effective traffic treatments to streets. Fiber optic improvements would include termination of existing fiber, upgrades of existing fiber, new fiber trunk and conduit installation to a depth of 36 inches, and new fiber installation in an existing conduit. There are four segments that would require trenching of a new fiber trunk and conduit.
