"AT&T NexGen/Core Fiber Optic Telecommunications Project"

This is an Environmental Assessment for a right-of-way proposed by AT&T Corp., for a buried fiber optic telecommunications line and associated facilities. This system, running from Lamesa, Texas to Los Angeles, California, is called the AT&T NexGen/Core Fiber Optic Telecommunications Project.
The proposed right-of-way crosses federal lands in the States of California, Arizona and New Mexico. It includes an amendment to the California Desert Conservation Area (CDCA) Plan which -- if approved -- will allow an exception to construct portions of this project along existing highways instead of within designated utility corridors on federal lands in Riverside, Imperial and San Diego Counties, California.
The proposed Project would consist of five links or points-of-presence (POP) connecting: (1) Lamesa to El Paso, Texas; (2) El Paso to Tucson, Arizona; (3) Tucson to Blythe, California; (4) Blythe to San Diego, California; and (5) San Diego to Los Angeles, California. The purpose being to construct, operate and maintain a buried fiber optic telecommunications system, including signal regeneration or optical amplification stations located every 40-50 miles, between Texas and California.
