NYC MicroTrenching Program

Microtrenching is the process of installing small conduits within the edges of the sidewalk to house fiber optic cabling. A quick, low-impact deployment method, fiber optic cabling is inserted into a small slot-cut trench without damaging or disrupting existing infrastructure. DoITT and the Department of Transportation have amended their rules to allow microtrenching. Read the microtrenching rules. Telecommunications providers interested in installing fiber using microtrenched conduit should complete the microtrenching application form.
