Gateway West Transmission Line | Segments 8 and 9








The BLM is preparing a supplemental environmental impact statement (EIS) analyzing new information associated with the potential impacts of approving a right-of-way (ROW) application for segments 8 and 9 of the Gateway West transmission line project.

Rocky Mountain Power and Idaho Power have submitted a revised application and revised plan of development for segments 8 and 9. The BLM determined that this new information warrants additional analysis and public review under the National Environmental Policy Act.
