Idaho Power starts work on project

Extensive maintenance and reconstruction work on the portion of Idaho Power’s 230-kilovolt line between La Grande to Baker City is now under way.

Idaho Power crews will continue working on this segment of the line through the end of the month.

The work is being done to ensure reliability and to meet a new mandate from the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, according to an Idaho Power news release. 

The project is part of one that encompasses Idaho Power’s entire service area in Oregon and Idaho. Work that is being done in Eastern Oregon includes replacing or upgrading the line’s “H-frame’’ structures.

Prior to the start of the work, Idaho Power sent letters to property owners upon whose land the work will be done and line crews drilled holes.

Existing roads will be used to access power lines whenever possible and some roads may require improvements.
