RAWLINS, Wyo. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) today opened a 30-day public comment period to receive public input on a proposed gen-tie electric line project in Carbon County, Wyoming. The Bureau’s Environmental Assessment analyzes two different options for a transmission line that would support the Rock Creek Wind Facility located on private land in Albany County. Under one of the proposed alternatives, the transmission line would cross approximately 4.7 miles of BLM-administered lands and would authorize a right-of-way for the construction, operation, maintenance, and eventual decommissioning of that portion of the 38-mile 230-kilovolt (kV) electric line.
