$3B power line project review delayed for 6 months
A detailed review of a proposed $3 billion power line that would run through Wyoming, Utah, Colorado and Nevada will be delayed about six months.
Under the TransWest Express Transmission Line project's initial timeline, the B-L-M was to have issued a draft plan for the project about now. However, spokeswoman Beverly Gorny says that plan is now expected sometime in the spring of next year.
Gorny says the delay is necessary to review newly proposed alternative routes that have come up during the process of trying to identify where the line should go.
The 725-mile line would provide power generated mostly from renewable energy sources to about 1.8 million homes in Southern California, Arizona and Nevada.
