‚ÄčAlbany-Eugene Transmission Line Rebuild
(DOE/EIS-0457)
Linn and Lane counties, Oregon

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) rebuilt a 32-mile section of the Albany-Eugene 115-kilovolt No. 1 Transmission Line. To understand the potential environmental impacts of this proposal, BPA prepared an environmental impact statement (EIS). Two alternatives were studied in the EIS: to rebuild the line or not to rebuild, continuing with current operation and maintenance practices. The EIS described anticipated impacts to natural and human resources and include mitigation measures that would enable BPA to avoid or minimize impacts.

CURRENT STATUS:
BPA issued a final environmental impact statement (FEIS) March 2012. The BPA Administrator signed a record of decision (ROD) on June 1, 2012 deciding to construct the project. Construction began in June 2012 and was completed in the fall of 2014.
