Wyoming, Idaho Meetings Set On Power Line, Sage Grouse
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Federal land managers have scheduled public meetings in Wyoming and Idaho on a sage grouse habitat analysis for a proposed electric power transmission line.
The Bureau of Land Management says the meetings will be held Feb. 15 in Cheyenne and Feb. 17 in Boise, Idaho.
The high-voltage Gateway West Transmission Line would extend nearly 1,100 miles across southern Wyoming and southern Idaho.
Idaho Power and Rocky Mountain Power are jointly proposing the line. Proponents have applied to the BLM and U.S. Forest Service for right of way.
The Cheyenne meeting will be at the BLM state office, 5353 Yellowstone Road. The Boise meeting will be at the Red Lion Boise Hotel, 1800 Fairview Ave.
Both meetings run from noon till 4 p.m.
