A main trunk line containing 96 individual fiber-optic lines was severed by a utility crew digging on Ronda Road near Spruance Road in Pebble Beach. That cut cable service at 11:02 a.m., said Andrew Johnson, regional spokesman for Comcast Corp.
Before digging, the usual practice is to alert other utilities with lines in the area, and the utilities use spray paint to mark the location of those lines, Niccum said. There wasn’t a mark indicating the 2-inch cable TV line was underground in this case, and some of the individual fiber-optic lines were cut by a backhoe, he said.
