Lane-Wendson Transmission Line Rebuild Project (DOE/EA-1952) 
Lane County, Oregon
The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) rebuilt its Lane-Wendson 115-kilovolt Transmission Line between Eugene and Florence, Oregon. To understand the potential environmental impacts of this proposal, BPA prepared an environmental assessment (EA). Two alternatives were studied in the EA: to rebuild the line or to not rebuild the line, and continue on with current operation and maintenance practices. The EA described anticipated impacts to natural and human resources and included mitigation measures that will help avoid or minimize impacts.
BPA issued the final EA and Finding of No Significant Impact for the project in April of 2016 and decided to proceed with the Proposed Action. Project construction will begin in August 2016 and be completed in December 2019.
