Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) is proposing to rebuild portions of its 23-mile-long, 115-kilovolt Bonneville-Hood River transmission line and an associated tap line running to Cascade Locks. Portions of the transmission line and the tap line are in poor condition due to normal deterioration. In addition, many of the existing roads and foot trails used to access the transmission line are in poor condition, and there currently is not access to all of the line’s existing transmission structures. BPA is proposing to replace the aged wood and steel lattice H-frame structures and other line components along the line and tap, and to improve its access road and trail system. If BPA decides to proceed with the project, access road work would likely begin in the summer of 2017 and structure work would likely begin in the summer of 2018.
