Digital 395 finally broke ground in Mono County this week, as workers began boring underground to form a
tunnel that will carry the 563-mile-long, high-speed digital cable through the Bridgeport area and other sensitive areas, joining a project that will eventually lay cable from Carson City to Mojave.
â€śIf the weather holds, we hope to get to the California/Nevada border by winter,â€ť project proponent Praxis Associates CEO Michael Ort told the Mono County Board of Supervisors Tuesday.
â€śWeâ€™re hiring,â€ť he said, words that were music to county supervisor ears.
â€śGet back out there and get that vest dirty,â€ť the supervisors told Ort, who has been working for more than two years to get the requisite permits and rights of ways for the massive project.
