CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Cedar Rapids has begun installing sixty miles of fiber optic cables.

The cables will connect school district locations, city and county facilities and 242 traffic lights in and around Cedar Rapids.

The city manager says the network will provide redundant communication connections among critical government facilities around the clock.

The project should wrap up in the fall of 2012 at the cost of $3.3 million.
