ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. -- Federal officials are still gathering comment on a proposed 725-mile power line that would run through four western states.
In Wyoming, about 100 people turned out for a hearing on the project Monday in Rock Springs. Another meeting will be held Thursday in Baggs.
TransWest Express, a subsidiary of the Anschutz Corp., wants to build a high-voltage line from south-central Wyoming through Utah and northwestern Colorado. The line would end in Nevada.
The Rock Springs Rocket-Miner said that residents there were able to comment using computers provided by officials. They were able to use Google Earth to find the part of the proposed route they were interested in and enter their comments.
Both a preferred route and possible alternate routes were identified on the computers.
