Fiber optic cabling between Dickey Hall and the Library was cut on 8/27 during the installation of site lighting.
This cable provides networking to the Library and the Lucy Laney residence hall.
Since these were the second and third cuts to the same cable and repairing them would involve a cumulative total of six splices,
it was decided to replace the cable and take it out of the ground.
Three temporary poles were sunk outside Dickey Hall to carry the fiber across the construction area and out of harm's way.
Networking was restored to the Library and Lucy Laney at approximately 6pm on 8/28.
