Gateway West Transmission Line
The BLM has authorized siting of the Gateway West transmission line on Federal lands in Wyoming and Idaho. A decision on siting segments 8 and 9 (in southwestern Idaho) was deferred to allow for further collaboration with stakeholders and State and local government officials before authorizing these segments.
The Boise District Resource Advisory Council has 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 project proponents.
