The area from the Yacht Club south to just before the intersection with Navarre Coulee Road is currently in the 3-5 year plan for fiber expansion. We will begin reaching out once we reach the Preconstruction Phase for this area.

FDT-230 Construction

  • We are performing electrical upgrades along S Lakeshore from Hania Ln. north to the end of the line (FDT-230).
  • Soon, a PUD contractor will perform remaining earthwork and installation of electrical equipment
  • Once work begins, we anticipate it will last about 8 weeks.
  • Working hours are generally Monday - Friday, 7 a.m. - 5 p.m.
  • Please watch for signage and flaggers in the work zone.

FDT-150 and FDT-151 - Easement Acquisition

  • Did you receive an EASEMENT LETTER?
  • If the PUD needs additional easements to cross your property, you will receive a letter.
  • Please sign and return the easement promptly.
  • If you did not receive an easement letter, we don't need one from you

How does the PUD expand the Fiber Network?

  • Before we can extend fiber cable to the area, we must first upgrade the electrical system (poles, wires, and other equipment). Significant work, including property rights and permitting, is sometimes needed to upgrade the electrical system to bring them up to current standards before fiber cables can be added. These upgrades not only prepare the system for fiber cables, they will also improve electrical reliability in the area.

  • It takes a lot of planning and coordination to extend the fiber network and serve individual homes and businesses. These projects are multi-phase and take multiple years. If you chose to apply for fiber service and your property is eligible, please know it will take some time between submitting your application and having fiber service at your home or business.

  • The PUD’s Fiber team will let you know when you can start applying for service with your chosen service provider. For more information on fiber service and a list of service providers, please visit the PUD’s Fiber webpage.
