Work on Fiber to Home in Jake Alexander Boulevard area

The Asplundh Tree Expert Company continues its safe route review process for the Fiber to the Home project in Salisbury.
Asplundh is in the process of reviewing city streets, utility poles and vegetation outgrowth to ensure that the current right of way maintenance offers maximum safety for fiber product installers. Right of way maintenance includes potential snipping of branches that pose a potential hazard for fiber service installers during placement of fiber products.
Asplundh had been working within a one-mile radius of the 1600 block of Jake Alexander Boulevard.
Barry King, the city of Salisbury’s Fiber to the Home Services Delivery Manager, says that in many instances, “very little or no trimming to tree branches may be needed. The intent is to provide enough right of way clearing that ensures the protection of our personnel during placement of the fiber product. Required work will include clearance of over-growth that inhibits adequate installation. The well-being of our personnel is of greatest significance.”
King says citizens with any questions or concerns should contact him by calling 704-216-7567.
