Northwestern BC line work powers up

The Northwest Transmission Line project is going to become a lot more visible in the city when the company doing the construction work opens offices in the old Northern Savings Credit Union building on the corner of Lazelle and Sparks the end of this month.

Renovations are nearly complete for what will be Valard’s main base of operations for the 287 kV line which will run 344 kilometres from BC Hydro’s Skeena Substation south of Terrace to Bob Quinn on Hwy37 North.

Less visible is a 50-bed camp being built approximately 5km up the West Kalum Forest Service Road thanks to a lease deal for land with the Kitsumkalum First Nation.
