600 meter Fiberglass RodThe project at 21061 is delayed due to a lack of fiber. The fiber is on the other side of Western Ave, the conduit is blocked. They tried "rodding" it but failed -- so they have to dig to clear the blockage, which means getting a permit from Caltrans as Western is a State Highway.

Didn't understand 'rodding' until I stumbled upon this over at Birch:

It is a fiberglass "rod", about a half inch diameter, 600 meters (1968 feet)(0.37 miles) long. Basically the same as the 100 foot 1/8" rod I use to snake conduits, just a bit bigger.
