Underground Projects

2019 Butte County

After devastating wildfires in Butte County, Outback was there to help restore power, gas, and communications to those affected by the fires.

2021 Highway 162

Outback used rock trenchers excavators to hammer through the difficult terrain. We also installed almost three miles of primary underground duct and over 15 large primary vaults.

2021 North Complex Fire Rebuild

Working in the tough mountain terrain with limited services, Outback was part of the efforts to restore power to the town of Berry Creek, CA.
