CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Bureau of Land Management has received about 650 individual comments about a proposed $3 billion power line that would run through four western states.
The agency has also received a 3-inch thick pack of comments from various conservation and environmental groups.
BLM project manager Sharon Knowlton said Friday that the comments from individuals are mostly in favor of the project. She's still going through the comments from the conservation and environmental groups.
TransWest Express, a subsidiary of the Anschutz Corp., wants to build the 725-mile line from south-central Wyoming through Utah, northwestern Colorado and into Nevada.
The line would carry power to some 1.8 million homes in Southern California, Arizona and Nevada.
The BLM will review the comments and then draft a report recommending a specific route and alternatives.
