2020 Is So Meta–Construction Crew Edition

A construction crew in Colorado apparently cut through some fiber optics lines, ironically causing an outage with the state’s 811 call-before-you-dig line.

It looks like someone may have forgotten to call before they started digging and now others are unable to do so due to an outage of the Colorado 811 hotline caused by a busted fiber line.

. . .

Anyone who’s digging deep or even just a few inches must contact Colorado 811 to have underground utilities marked for safety.

Colorado 811 will not be able to take any calls Tuesday afternoon or evening, but residents can utilize their online services to submit ticket requests. The non-profit said they would update their social media pages with the latest information.
