More than $500,000 in federal grant funding is being provided at Boucher's request for the establishment of high-speed broadband services in the Rose Hill community of Lee County. The federal funds will be used to deploy fiber optic lines across the "last mile" to approximately 40 homes and 10 businesses. The lines will be installed along the Daniel Boone Trail from Martins Creek to Indian Creek and along the new fourlane crossing at U.S. Route 58 in Rose Hill. In addition, new computer workstations will be purchased and installed at the Rose Hill Public Library public Internet access site.
