Bay Broadband Effort Resumes

After Permits Granted The Maryland Board of Public Works approved a wetlands permit needed for a high-speed Internet project on the Eastern Shore. The license will enable the Maryland Broadband Cooperative to install about 16,500 feet of fiber optic cable over and under state tidal wetlands from Wallops Island, VA to the Bay Bridge in Queen Anne’s County. The board also waived roughly $100,000 in wetlands permit fees for the project.
