Design and Construction

Idaho Power has the following goals while identifying and evaluating transmission line corridors for the B2H:

  • Avoid and/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 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.
