Fiber-optic installation taking place in Bloomington

1 min read

BLOOMINGTON— If you see non-City crews working in a right-of-way along a street near you or in backyard drainage and utility easements, they may be installing fiber optic cable. 

There are currently three fiber companies doing work in Bloomington: Arvig Zayo, CenturyLink/Lumen, and Intrepid (T-Mobile). The work is not being carried out by the City of Bloomington, but the providers do have permits to perform this work, said city officials in an official release. 

This project is slatted to provide faster networking services to the city.

Weather dependent, the work is expected to continue for the next year into 2024. Prior to starting the work, these companies are reportedly placing door hangers in the neighborhoods with contact information on them should residents have questions. The city of Bloomington urges residents to contact the crews working on the installations if they have questions about the project.
