Fiber Installation Project Lightwave Construction is working in portions of Arcata to construct new conduit and fiber infrastructure for Vero Networks. This system will enable broadband connectivity to high-bandwidth customers in the Arcata/Eureka area such as large enterprise, education, government & carrier/last mile providers.

As a state-recognized public utility, Vero Networks will be performing work in the City right-of-way under a permit issued by the City of Arcata. The City has imposed certain requirements to lessen the impact of this work in Arcata’s neighborhoods, which can be found in more detail here.

Project plans can be viewed for Phase I & Phase II of the project.
