Design and Construction

Idaho Power pursues the following goals when identifying and evaluating transmission line corridors for B2H:

  • Avoid or minimize impacts to the environment to the greatest extent possible.
  • Develop a corridor that meets engineering and construction requirements in a fiscally responsible manner.
  • Connect existing and planned substations.
  • Solicit public comment and implement suggestions where possible.

As the project progresses and the routing is refined to a 100- to 250-foot right of way corridor, Idaho Power will work with individual landowners to discuss where best to site the transmission line towers and access roads on their land.
