Contractor damages port fiber lines in Spokane County


February 21, 2019

Some of the Port of Whitman’s fiber lines that run up to Spokane on Spotted Road near the Spokane Airport were damaged in January while a construction company was working.

While the company was excavating the fiber in order not to hit it, a rock fell on the exposed line and ended up pinching and crushing the line in two areas.

On the following day, the group was cutting into the vault with a sawzall and cut into the fiber on accident as well. No additional damage was done by the sawzall, as it cut in between the two crushed locations, but the pinched and cut fiber had to be spliced.
