Year 3 Construction Project Begins

We are pleased to announce that Valleys staff, engineers and contractors has finally broke ground on the Year 3 FTTF (Fiber-To-The-Farm) project.

Originally scheduled to begin in mid-May, the project was delayed due to the lack of availability of fiber optic cable. Companies nationwide experienced the same shortages as a result of utility upgrades brought about by the National Stimulus Funding Program. Over the next several weeks, Valleys contractors including Ripley Construction of Cannon Falls, MN and PUSH, Inc. of Rice Lake, WI, as well as Valleys engineers, Finley Engineering of Bismarck, ND will begin work in the Phase 2 Leola (east) and Ipswich areas.

Homeowners and landowners in the above mentioned areas may notice employees of the these companies in the area. These contractors may visit your premises or require access to your home. They are authorized by Valley to obtain information and enter your premise on our behalf.

If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact our business office at 437-2615. Thank you for your cooperation.
