Gateway West Transmission Line
The BLM has authorized siting on Federal lands eight of the 10 segments that comprise the Gateway West transmission line. Visit the BLM-Wyoming website for information on Segments 1 through 7 and 10.
For the remaining two segments – 8 and 9 – the BLM will conduct additional environmental analysis of new information on routing options and potential mitigation and enhancement measures for lands that would be impacted by authorizing these two segments.
Information on authorization of segments 8 and 9 is found on this website.
In June 2014, the Boise District Resource Advisory Council reported on options for siting segments 8 and 9 and on a mitigation and enhancement portfolio proposed by Idaho Power and Rocky Mountain Power.
The companies have revised their right of way (ROW) application and Plan of Development (POD) for segments 8 and 9 in response to the RAC reports.
The BLM will conduct additional environmental analysis of the revised application and POD,
which represent significant new information,
with opportunities for full public involvement
