Rain has hampered the progress for WK&T crews working to install underground pipe and to pull the fiber optic cable for the Fiber for Martin project.
With additional heavy rains anticipated, delays could extend to next week.
The rain affects crews installing the pipe as well as the fiber splicer crews. Their work cannot be done in the rain because of the equipment.
The WK&T office is still set to open in mid-July. It will be an office space for employees working on the project and will be a customer service center for new WK&T customers to sign up for service, find out about new offerings, pay their bill or get technical support.
