Office(s): Bonneville Power Administration

Bonneville Power Administration proposes to allow Comcast Cable Communications, Incorporated (Comcast) to install fiber optic cable to the existing T-Mobile cellular facility located at the Ross Complex. Comcast will place conduit using underground boring equipment through which fiber optics cable will be installed. Boring will run north from pole NT/5202 along Northeast 18th Avenue, then west along Northeast Ross Street, then cross Northeast 15th Avenue. Boring will continue north across Northeast Ross Street and tie to MH #125T, intercepting existing 4 foot empty conduit. Newly installed and existing empty conduit will be used to install fiber optics cable to the existing T-Mobile equipment on Northeast North Road on the Ross Complex. 15 feet of new conduit and fiber cable (8 feet vertically from the ground up along the side of the T-Mobile equipment and 7 feet horizontally across the top of the T-Mobile equipment) will be installed to make the final fiber connection to the T-Mobile cabling structure. No work will be performed on the tower.
