KAMO Electric is proposing to directionally bore one 4" steel casing with two 1.25" conduits and place one Fiber Optic cable under the Arkansas River. The proposed construction will require ground disturbance of an area slightly bigger than 24"x36"x24" for the placement of a hand hole and for the beginning and ending points of the bore. The bore will then traverse under the riverbed and surface on the other side of the river. KAMO anticipates the project will be complete by 2024.
