Astrea is happy to announce that after a few hurdles and supply chain issues, we are back on track to bring service to over a 1,000 homes in Platteville in the next 6 months.
As we work to build new infrastructure, it’s necessary for us to place sections of fiber underground and establish equipment within the right of way on certain properties. If you observe a new stake placed in your yard, it indicates the planned placement of new equipment.
We’ll be sure to restore any damage to the soil and grass as soon as we’re able to. This timing depends on weather conditions and material availability, but please know that we will be cleaning up the mess. Once we do, it’ll be like we were never there at all. Restoration after construction is something our contractors take great pride in.
Here are a few tips to keep the grass looking great after we restore where we built:
- Do not mow right away. Allow the new grass to get settled and establish roots.
- Don’t mow the grass too short. Keeping the grass a little longer reduces the stress on the grass.
- Water regularly. Keeping the area properly watered will help with growth.
- Don’t walk on the new grass until after the first mowing.
Last week, Astrea team members had the pleasure of visiting our newest service area: Platteville, WI! Construction in the area is ongoing, and we were able to share updates on the progress and tell everyone a little bit more about who we are.
Construction crews continue to build infrastructure in Southwest Platteville, and installation pre-scheduling for May will begin next week for those in that area. If you live in that area and receive a flyer or postcard from Astrea, please re-enter your information here to let us know you'd like to schedule an installation.
Progress in other areas of town will take a bit longer due to supply chain constraints. While we hope to see a resolution soon, until key materials are secured we will be unable to share additional availability timeframes.
We continue to make progress on the fiber Internet build in Platteville. Construction crews are active in various parts of the community breaking ground and moving the project forward.
