The Port Commission has contracted with Ascent GIS to complete phase one of the Dark Fiber Feasibility Study and will be working with the Port of Whitman County for the Market Analysis. There are two routes being reviewed:
- Woodland to Cougar along Lewis River Rd/ SR 503
- Woodland Bottoms from City limits on Dike Access to Dike Road and onto Kuhnis Road
The Port will be reviewing data provided by Ascent GIS to determine construction costs. A partnership with the Port of Whitman County was established due to their expertise in dark fiber construction and maintenance throughout eastern Washington and will assist in the market analysis.
