Construction Begins in Rushford

Construction Begins in Rushford

Construction began in the city of Rushford. You may have noticed many trucks in town with cable spools and other large equipment used for boring the fiber in the ground. This phase of the process is a joint effort so you may see some workers and vehicles that are not labeled AcenTek. We are working beside Central Cable, contractors out of Waupun, WI. We will be beginning on the north end of town and are moving south.
