Quick update on Century Link fro Mayor Tara
We met with Century Link and Xcel this morning and walked through Town with them. Century Link has fiber into Town, but they need to repair the copper to deliver phone service. They are dependent on Xcel to put up poles so Century Link can run the cables. The plan is:
Xcel will begin replacing poles down Lower Main St. This will take 2-4 days. They will be working down there from8:30-dark. During these hours we request that people do not drive on Lower Main St. If you need to plan to leave your vehicle on either side and walk, that is fine. But the activities these work crews will be performing are such that they will not be able to move out of the way. So, beginning Monday Lower Main St will be effectively closed to residential traffic from 8:30-dark for 2-4 days.
Once Xcel is finished Century Link will be able to begin restoring service to individual properties.
Please share this information with everyone. I’d hate for people to be stuck on either side of these work crews and then be delayed for a long time. Please also know that this will not impede the work of the Southern Baptists. We have this organized.
Don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
