Local Construction and Various Upgrades Around the City

Several communications companies are currently working on upgrading and installing new communication cables and conduit throughout the City. This work includes cutting into the roadway and sidewalks and placing or repairing cables and conduit, for example placing fiber optic cable on existing poles or installing new underground facilities into the roadway and/or onto sidewalk areas.
Work is occurring in multiple areas and may include road closures or lane reductions. You may also see paint markings or small flags of varying color for utilities in your area. These markings are to indicate the locations of other utility lines in the area, and to ensure that damage and outages do not occur as a result of the work the telecommunications company is doing to update or install their cables. This work should not impact your utility service. Utility companies should be using chalk paint so the markings will remain only temporarily.
One of the largest companies doing work throughout the City is Frontier Communications who is using the subcontractor HCI, Inc. for the installation. HCI will be placing door hangers in neighborhoods prior to the start of work. For information on the Frontier project and service availability, residents can contact Frontier directly at 833-258-2434 or GetFrontierFiber.com.
Please remember to drive or walk cautiously through construction areas and follow signage for detours. Whenever possible, try to utilize alternate routes while the work is being completed.
If you have questions or see anything that looks unsafe, please contact the City of Morgan Hill at engineeringtechs@morganhill.ca.gov.
