Mi-fiber has been busy this summer and now fall installing fiber throughout parts of the City as they become Waukee's newest internet provider. Here are some notes about where they are working now and what they are doing in their designated "fiberhoods". See where you land on the fiberhood map.
- Conduit installation is underway in fiberhoods C and E. This consists of directional boring machines which install conduit within right-of-ways (ROW) or within Public Utility Easements (PUE). The majority of properties in Waukee have portions of them designated as PUEs. This allows private and public utility companies to work within the PUE boundaries of said properties.
- Fiber is being installed within the conduits in fiberhood D. This consists of crews pulling fiber cable into conduit and accessing these conduits through the hand holes (below-ground boxes) installed during conduit installation.
Crews will restore any disturbed areas to normal conditions following the conduit and fiber installation completion. For questions about the installation, call mi-fiber at 1-844-499-0399. For questions about utility permits, ROWs or PUEs, please call Waukee Public Works at 515-978-7920.
