FARMINGTON — The Davis County Board of Commissioners is planning to bore under Interstate 15.

The county's information technology director, Mark Langston, said his department needs new fiber optic lines to run from the county's headquarters at the Memorial Courthouse down State Street to the county's justice complex about a mile west.

The county is partnering with the Utah Department of Transportation and Qwest to run the lines under the freeway and the future site of the Legacy Parkway.

County workers have already begun a trenching operation west of I-15, Langston said.

The engineering task is expected to be completed in coming weeks.
