    These must be the knucklheads whose contractors are calling in multiple mile row to row jobs in Naperville right now, and to the east for weeks prior.Super pissed off locators everywhere they have been recently. All I've heard is cursing from the USIC techs working over there. They most likely have someone in house right now.

    Straight shot north side of Ogden? Negative my friend. Tech I talked to today sez they have crossed over to the south and back several times, and are already doing a major deviation from the original spec that they layed out for Nicor several months ago. Aspen also has been telling everyone all along that this was a fibre running south from O'Hare to Aurora, leading quite a few techs to believe it may be an FAA run tying into the radar station in Aurora. Nope, just another damned multi mile fibre bore running down an overcrowded state highway. And everyone has to drop everything to attend to it because the one call system lets anyone come into town and upset the apple cart in Illinois. Bonus: to add insult to injury the contract locating firms lose a shitload of labor dollars on crap like this, and it is getting worse every single year.

    But wait, there's more! The funny part is that Aspen isn't even the principle on this job from hell, Western Utilities is. They aren't even working anywhere on this project right now. What a tangled web we weave!!

    i know for a fact from westmont going to aurora they are and have so far stayed on the north side of ogden, western has been no where seen on site, aspen and archon are around saw them an hour ago. now i think camco is involved subbing for western in aurora. mike from aspen told me from cicero to west of 59 the fiber is going. aspens at washington/ogden east of the walgreens right now. what its going to... i have no clue and no clue who will be locating it.\

    Fact: If they are on the north side all the way, why is there poly pipe sticking up out of the ground in the southern easement east of Naper Blvd. just inside of the Lisle city limits? Check your facts friend, you're coming off like a noob and that's no way to act if you do indeed want a job locating a very expensive fiber.
