BPA proposes to rebuild three 115-kV wood-pole transmission lines totaling approximately 151 miles between the communities of Hot Springs and Anaconda, Montana. Improvements would involve replacing all wood-pole structures (including poles and other hardware), replacing conductors and ground wires, and improving access roads. BPA expects to publish the draft environmental impact statement in October 2018. If BPA decides to proceed with the project, construction would begin in the spring 2019.
