Document Description
The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) is proposing the Path 46 Transmission Line Clearance Project to restore ground-to-conductor clearances that are out of compliance with transmission line safety and reliability standards. The project is located along three existing overhead transmission line alignments in San Bernardino County near Victorville, Barstow, and Baker, California: the 500 kilovolt McCullough-Victorville Lines 1 and 2 and the 287 kilovolt Mead-Victorville Line 1. LADWP proposes to comply with the code clearances by grading underneath transmission lines at 68 work areas and installing barricades at two locations. The total acreage of grading would be 7.8 acres. In two locations where grading is infeasible, LADWP would raise existing transmission towers, resulting in an additional 3.7 acres of temporary disturbance.
