same ROW ,& even cable , as the orginal L1 route; therefore any
documentation/maps/markers/repeaters on L3 between those cities should
provide some answers.There may have been some minor reroutes
near/within cities due to new conduit,etc.
In most cases the L cable would be designated the "C" cable between
city A & city Z, not becuz its coax but that there were already A & B
cables(for K carrier) existing.
