A message from Planning Board Chairman, Norm Viger:
On Monday August 13, Otelco will begin digging to place fiber optic cable under the road across the Plymouth Pond causeway. This project has been approved by Maine Department of Transportation, Maine DEP and the Plymouth Planning Board. The project should be completed in about 3 to 4 weeks. There will be periods when traffic will be restricted to one lane during working hours.
Otelco will be installing one new pole approximately 50 feet south of the entrance to the boat landing.
This project will help to provide faster and more reliable phone and internet service to Plymouth residents living south of the causeway. The cable will be placed in conduit that will have the capacity for expansion or new technology without the need for extensive excavation in the future.
