Western proposes to conduct access road maintenance between structures 180/1 & 188/2 of the existing Mead-Perkins 500-kilovolt transmission line. This will consist of blading and leveling out areas of the existing access road using dozers, bucket trucks, crew trucks and pickup trucks. This work is needed to facilitate avian nest removal at structures 180/1, 182/2, 186/2 & 188/2. This work is necessary to maintain the safety and reliability of the bulk electrical system.
