Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead Delaney Colorado River Transmission, LLC proposes to construct, operate, maintain, and decommission an electric transmission project in western Arizona and eastern California. The proposed project would consist of a 500-kV transmission line traversing provide interconnection capability for new energy projects located near the proposed project. The proposed 500-kV transmission line would install transmission supporting structures between 72 and 190 ft in height, conductors, overhead ground wire, and a new series compensation system substation. The 17-mile portion of the proposed project in California would begin at the Colorado River Substation west of the city of Blythe and run eastward to the Colorado River near the I-10 corridor in eastern Riverside County, CA.
