This page contains Current Action Items, Relevant Documents, and a Google Maps Map of the project.


The SCAN project will provide telecommunication connections in participating communities to a regional network via a variety of economically viable and sustainable methods.  These methods include local and regional government ownership of infrastructure through an open access model, leveraging existing infrastructure where possible, and aggregating service demand.  The benefits of the network include increased bandwidth at lower cost, increased services, shared software and applications and more reliable service.

Current Bids and Action Items

New quote process
The SCAN project received no responsive bids to the solicitation of May 2012. In accordance with the procurement policies of the SWCCOG, Bayfield, and other participating communities, the project is now soliciting quotes from vendors. The following documents are designed to help telecommunications construction vendors as they work with the SCAN to prepare quotes.
The intent is to include construction work in Silverton, Dolores, Mancos, Bayfield, Ignacio, and Pagosa Springs. Additional work may be added in Dove Creek and other participating SCAN communities.
Proposed construction includes:

  • Silverton
    Silverton construction consists of buried fiber optic cable running from the County Courthouse on 15th and Reese southeast to the alley behind the fire station then turning southwest and running behind the town hall to 11th. On 11th, the path turns to the nortwest to the the alley between Reese and Snowden where the path turns to the northeast to reach the library and the school. An optional extension continues on to 13th where it will turn nortwest to reach the County Health building.
    The main line is about 0.6 miles long and the optional County Health extension is about 0.2 miles long. All construction will be buried with construction methods varying depending on the selected vendor's capabilities and ground conditions. Current staking sheets can be found here with minor corrections to two sheets available here. The staking sheets do not depict the optional County Health extension differently than the main line. Proposed construction units (including the optional County Health extension) include:

  • Dolores
    Dolores construction consists buried fiber optic cable running from the waste water treatment facility east past the fire station then along Central past the Town Hall and the San Juan BOCES facility on 6th. The path continues east on Central to 9th where it turns south to reach the library. The SCAN's current understanding of EAGLE-Net's plans is that they will extend infrastructure to the schools on 12th. If EAGLE-Net does not extend to the schools, the SCAN might add the 1/4 mile of infrastructure needed to reach the schools. Further, the SCAN intends to capitalize on Dolores Town permitting conditions to work with EAGLE-Net to include SCAN conduit in conjunction with the EAGLE-Net construction. About half of the BFOV(2X1.25")W should be placed by the EAGLE-Net construction team. If this does not happen, the staking sheets will be updated.
    The current proposed infrastructure (from the waste water treatment facility to the library) is about 1.1 mile in length. All construction will be buried with construction methods varying depending on the selected vendor's capabilities and ground conditions. Current staking sheets can be found here. Proposed construction units include:
    BFO48I

  • Mancos
    Mancos construction consists new fiber optic cable required to connect the library to the town hall. The Town has asked for additional infrastructure to also connect the town shops to the Town Hall. The fire station will also be connected but this connection will be dependent on taking advantage of Mancos Town permitting conditions requiring the EAGLE-Net project to include infrastructure for the Town along their path.
    Current staking sheets only detail the library to town hall connection. Engineers are working to add the additional infrastructure which will include a route to the town shops, concurrent infrastructure with EAGLE-Net to the fire station, and any infrastructure needed to connect the fire station to the EAGLE-Net path.
    Proposed construction units for the library to town hall path include:
    BFO48I
    1,386
      BM61(3")D
    485
    BFOV(2X1.25")

    We estimate about 3/4 mile additional infrastructure to include the fire station and town shops.
    Construction methods are negotiable.
  • Bayfield
    The orignial intent in Bayfield was to complete a fiber ring from the town hall to the town shops, the water towers, the high school, and back to the town hall with an additional segment extending from the town hall along Bayfield Parkway to about Highway 160 as per the depiction that can be found here. Bayfield has elected to break the project into "essential" and "expansion" segments. The "essential" segments include the route from Highway 160 along Bayfield Parkway to the town hall, the needed infrastructure to connect the town hall with FastTrack's fiber at Mill and Pine, and the needed fiber to connect the town shops on Community to FastTrack's fiber at the School District's offices on Bayfield Parkway at about La Plata. The "essential" infrastructure also includes laterals to connect the wastewater and water treatment facilities.
    The original design contemplated only two conduits along these essential routes. The current demand is for four.
    The original design included an optional bridge attachment at the Los Pinos River crossing on Bayfield Parkway. The Army Corps of Engineers has approved a bore and the optional bridge attachment is no longer available.
    Current staking sheets for Bayfield have not been updated to depict these changes. Engineers are working on the new requirements and new staking sheets will be available when they are prepared. The "essential" infrastructure represents about 2.2 miles of new underground construction. Estimated construction units include:
    BFO24I

  • Ignacio
    Ignacio construction consists new fiber optic cable required to connect the fire station to the school.
    The current proposed infrastructure is about 0.1 mile in length. Construction will be buried with construction methods varying depending on the selected vendor's capabilities and ground conditions. At the north end of the line, the route goes up one pole. The current proposed staking sheets can be found here. Proposed construction units include:

  • Pagosa Springs
    Construction in Pagosa Springs will be in cooperation with an upgrade USA Communications already has under way. In addition to the work USA Communications is completing, the SCAN project will add laterals to: 1) connect the Archuleta County shops on Highway 84 to new infrastructure along Highway 160, 2) connect the Town facility at the south end of Stephens Field with new infrastructure along Highway 160, 3) connect the hospital to new infrastructure along Highway 160, 4) connect the fire station to new infrastructure along Highway 160, 5) create connector segments to attach the PAWSD facility to a new pipeline planned along Lake Forest and Vista, and 6) connect from the pipeline along 160 to new infrastructure at about Piedra.
    Engineers are in the process of designing the needed segments in Pagosa Springs. We anticipate just over 3 miles of new SCAN construction. Most of the construction will be buried infrastructure with occassional meet points on existing poles.
