Portland, Ore. - After several months of study, the Bonneville Power Administration has determined it will no longer consider four of the 52 potential route segments for its proposed I-5 Corridor Reinforcement Project between the Castle Rock, Wash., area and Troutdale, Ore. The segments no longer being considered stretch from northeast of Amboy, Wash., to northwest of Camas, Wash.
The four segments are identified as segments 27, 31, 42 and 44 on the I-5 Corridor Reinforcement Project map.
“Though the four segments we were considering follow an existing transmission right-of-way, they just are not the right fit for a 500-kilovolt power line,” said Mark Korsness, BPA project manager. “Other segments currently under consideration either already have a BPA line on an existing right-of-way or allow for wider study corridors in less populated areas.”
