Google Fiber coming to Prairie Village
In 2013, the Prairie Village City Council approved an agreement with Google Fiber to develop an ultra-high-speed, fiber-to-the-home network within the City. Prairie Village residents have been waiting with much anticipation for Google to begin their work to extend services to area residents. Google has started preliminary utility work and the installation of the Google Fiber network.
Prairie Village residents can expect to see Google subcontractors working within the City’s right-of-way and various utility easements. Area residents will receive door-hangers prior to construction activity beginning in their immediate neighborhood. Workers will be placing buried conduits, installing fiber (both aerial and buried), and replacing utility poles when deemed necessary.
You may expect the following during the overall construction process:
- Occasional lane closures will occur as contractors work along residential streets.
- Contractors may need to access utility poles or underground equipment on your property.
- Digging in numerous easement areas will be necessary to install the fiber network within your neighborhood.
- Please note that construction work in your neighborhood should not disrupt any of your utility services. If you experience any disruption in service, please contact your utility provider immediately.
If you have questions or concerns with Google Fiber construction in your area, call the Google Fiber construction phone line at 866-777-7550.
Additional project updates including time lines will be provided on this page as they become available.
