Fiber Optic Cable Installation

Additional Information

CenturyLink will be placing new fiber optic cable at various sites in road right-of-ways around Minnehaha County. At some point during the summer of 2018, they will be in Split Rock Township. 

Affected areas: 

  • Veteran's Hwy
  • E 41st St
  • S Riverview Ave

Phase 1 will consist of temporary placement of orange pipes to delineate where cable will be buried.  Phase 2 will consist of actually burying the cable. The cable will run parallel to existing copper lines.

CenturyLink has assured us they will bore under any obstructions, and repair and reseed areas where any damage is inadvertently done. Residents should notify the Township if they notice any crushed culverts or other damage due to this activity.
