Google Fiber team checking out Rosedale utility poles

googlefiberA yellow safety vest and hard hat tend to indicate work being done. Early Saturday June 7th a workman, so clad, was spotted near the corner of 44th and Burnet. He said he is inspecting the existing load on the utility poles in the neighborhood under contract from Google. His mission is to ensure the poles can properly handle the additional load of Google Fiber cables due to be “spooled” very early in 2015. If not, he is to indicate what upgrades to any poles Google will need to perform. It would seem that Austin’s Rosedale neighborhood is in some much coveted cross-hairs!
