Construction workers were observed in various locations around Mena last week drilling in front of homes and businesses. The Pulse was able to catch up to the crew and workers on site stated the work was being done to install new fiber optic lines that will run from the AT&T Headquarters in Mena, on the corner of Port Arthur and DeQueen Streets, to the new cell phone tower that has been built behind Shamrock Nuts and Bolts on Hwy. 71 South.
AT&T spokesperson Ricky Cross would not confirm, nor deny, the areas affected, what work was being done, or how services could impact customers.
