Public Weighs in On Gateway West Route

Posted By on Mon, May 6, 2013 at 9:10 AM

Beginning today, the public will have the opportunity to weigh in on the latest version of the Gateway West power project - a proposed transmission line that would, if approved, run from Wyoming across southern Idaho.

The Bureau of Land Management is holding a series of public comment meetings around Idaho beginning this afternoon at 4 p.m. at the Boise Hotel and Conference Center on Vista Avenue. Later this week, the BLM will take the issue to similar meetings in Kuna, Murphy and Melba.

The proposed project - composed of 10 transmission line segments with a total length of 1,000 miles across southern Wyoming and into Idaho - is a joint effort by Idaho Power and Rocky Mountain Power, hoping to construct and operate 230 and 500 kilovolt transmission lines from the Windstar Substation near Glenrock, Wyoming to the Hemingway Substation near Melba.
