Zayo long haul fiber route to connect Salt Lake City to Denver

Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) has announced plans for a new long haul fiber network between Salt Lake City, Utah and Denver, Colorado, the company said.

Construction on the success-based route started last quarter and is anticipated to be completed in 2021.

The build will span more than 500 route miles along Interstate 70, a key transportation and commerce corridor. The route, which will be primarily underground, offers unique connectivity and diversity between Salt Lake City and Denver. Zayo´s existing route connects the two cities through Wyoming and into Utah.

The route will tie together two high-growth western markets and states. Colorado is among the nation´s fastest growing states with a diverse base of business and industry. Its economic growth has been driven by technology, aerospace, healthcare and biotechnology and professional services. Zayo´s Denver fiber footprint consists of 1,600 route miles and the market is the primary intersection of owned long haul dark fiber connecting Chicago, Dallas and San Francisco.

Zayo Group Holdings provides mission-critical bandwidth to the world´s most impactful companies, fueling the innovations that are transforming our society. Zayo´s 130,000-mile network in North America and Europe includes extensive metro connectivity to thousands of buildings and data centers. For more information, visit
