UC2B Construction Update

The Urbana Champaign Big Broadband Project (UC2B) construction work continues in Urbana.  John Burns Construction Company from Orland Park is installing fiber optic cable throughout the City of Urbana.

With most of the conduit and handhole installation complete, crews are shifting their focus of work to restoring surfaces disrupted during the installation of conduit and handholes and to installing fiber optic cable through the conduit. 

Seeding and pavement restoration began in northwest Urbana and will move east and south.  Dry weather has prevented grass establishment in many areas, so seeding efforts have been scheduled to resume in the fall.

Fiber optic cable will be installed in the backbone rings that surround the community and in individual locations that will receive service.

For maps of the construction areas, please see below.
