Port of Clarkston Continues Expansion of Fiber-optic Network

The Port of Clarkston continues expansion of its fiber-optic network to serve Asotin County. Begun in 2013, the investments in dark fiber make it possible for services to be provided by the private sector to businesses and homes without the need for duplicative runs of fiber optic cable in the community's rights-of-way.

The project’s greatest accomplishment in 2017 has been getting fiber across Southway Bridge to provide a redundant path, in case there is a problem somewhere along the way. The Ports of Clarkston and Lewiston lease the same conduit in the bridge, and each owns the sector of fiber within its jurisdiction.

To learn more about the project, go to or contact Valley Vision, the Lewis-Clark Valley’s economic development agency.
