EA-1855: Draft Environmental Assessment

The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) proposes to rebuild the Creston-Bell 115-kilovolt transmission line. The 54-mile long, wood pole line extends from the BPA Creston substation to the BPA Bell substation in Lincoln and Spokane Counties, Washington. The project would include replacing wood poles, associated structural components, and conductor, improvements to some existing access roads, construction of 10 miles of new access roads, and some vegetation removal. The rebuild would enable BPA to maintain reliable electric service and avoid risks to the public and worker safety. The line would continue to operate at 115-kV.
