Ardmore Telephone Company crews have been hard at work in the New Market and Elkmont fiber project areas.
Hurricane Road and Ray Road — Approximately, 50-60 locations along Hurricane Road (between Frank Hereford Road and Ray Road) are available for installations. Crews are still working on Ray Road, Hearthstone Road, Borelli Road, Keiffer Circle, and part of Sharps Hollow Road (to Ray Road).
Deer Trace — This area consists of Deertrace Parkway and the north section of Upper Hurricane Creek Road. The majority of the boring is complete. Crews are expected to start plowing/pulling cable and placing handholes and peds soon. Splicing/testing will follow and then installations.
Mint Springs — This area consists of Mint Springs Road from New Market Road to near Mint Road. It also includes New Market Road from Beth Road to 501 New Market Road. Crews have just recently started boring on this project.
Elkmont CO — This is a rather large project and covers most of the downtown vicinity of Elkmont. Crews have been putting aerial cable up along Upper Fort Hampton Road and should be placing peds/handholes soon. They have also been boring around the Elkmont High School area along High School Road, Highland Avenue, Cotton Spring Street, and Vaughn Street. Crews are expected to start building the west side of downtown Elkmont soon.
