Albany to Eugene 115-kV Rebuild

The Albany to Eugene 115-kV Rebuild project, by Bonneville Power Administration, involved rebuilding of a 32-mile section of the 115-kV Albany-Eugene No. 1 transmission line that runs between Albany and Eugene in Oregon. The line, which went into service in the 1940s, needed to be rebuilt in order to maintain reliable electrical service and to avoid safety risks to the public and maintenance crews. The line will continue to operate at 115-kV. The cost of rebuilding the line is estimated at $16.1m. Construction began in June 2012 and was completed in 2013.
