Line repair

There is a fiber-optic telephone transmission line that runs across our property and is mostly buried six feet deep.  A portion of it goes over a large pond and is supported by poles at either terminus point.

The line has been sagging for some time, and today the Verizon construction crew showed up to repair the situation.  They had some trouble reaching the problem area, despite having a vehicle equipped to transit difficult terrain.

The trouble spot was finally attained and a ladder allowed access.   After a couple of hours of labor, the line was secure and the trucks packed up and left our back yard.
