Comcast services to large parts of the Village along with parts of Elmhurst, Hillside and Westchester have been cut off due to a construction accident that occurred at Harger Rd. and Salt Creek earlier this afternoon that severed a major fiber optic trunk cable.
Comcast crews are on the scene of the incident and are assessing the damage. At this time, we do not have an estimate on when the repairs will be completed. The initial assessment indicate the fiber cable is severely damaged which may lead to an extended outage.
We will provide you with further updates when they are available.
