BEK Fiber Optic Line

Project Type: Utilities

Client: BEK Communication

Location: North Dakota

Project Synopsis

The BEK Fiber Optic Line consisted of multiple extensions in different rural towns in North Dakota.

The fiber optic line spanned 1,700 miles, and fully utilized the various parts of the Cultural Resource Process namely Class I- background research, Class II- vehicular drive of the route (where accessible), and Class III- intensive pedestrian survey.

Beaver Creek’s field staff recorded archaeological, historical and architectural sites within the fiber optic line corridor. After the sites were located Beaver Creek worked with the client in order to reroute the line to avoid potentially eligible sites. Staff flagged site locations so that construction could proceed without any problems.
