Construction crew hits underground fiber line, causes outage of 'call
before you dig' hotline
Through the 811 hotline you can call to have utility lines marked before
doing any digging.
DENVER — It looks like someone may have forgotten to call before they
started digging and now others are unable to do so due to an outage of the
Colorado 811 hotline caused by a busted fiber line.
A message on the Colorado 811 website says there's an outage in the
communication system. It says an underground fiber line was damaged and
it's causing "significant" outages in the Denver area.
Construction activity caused underground damage, according to the website.
Crews are working to repair the damage, but repairs are not expected to be
completed until around 8 p.m. Tuesday.
