The Bureau of Land Management has issued a Decision Record approving routes for segments 8 and 9 of the Gateway West transmission line project. Approval of these routes will connect previously authorized routes in southern Wyoming and eastern Idaho. Rocky Mountain Power and Idaho Power first proposed the 500-kilovolt, 10-segment Project in 2007 as a 10-segment, 500-kilovolt transmission line originating near Glenrock, Wyoming, and terminating at the Hemingway substation, 20 miles southwest of Boise, Idaho. The BLM authorized public-land Rights-of-Way for segments 1 through 7 and 10 in 2013, but deferred a decision on segments 8 and 9 to examine additional routing options.
 
The BLM analyzed a range of alternative routes for segments 8 and 9 in a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). A subsequent Environmental Assessment led to a Finding of No New Significant Impact beyond those disclosed in the Supplemental EIS.
