Cascade Crossing Project was a proposed 120-mile, 500-kV transmission line that would have originated at Boardman and terminated at Salem, Ore. The project, which was sponsored by Portland General Electric, was estimated to cost approximately $800m. In January 2013, PGE announced it would scale back the length of project. However, he project was ultimately canceled June 2013. The planned line’s original route would have began with an interconnect at a new Grassland substation adjacent to the existing Boardman power plant and a new Cedar Spring substation approximately 36 miles southwest of the Boardman power plant.
