The U.S. Forest Service has accepted an application from La Plata Electric Association, Inc. to reconductor the existing three-phase overhead line on U.S. 84 approximately six miles southeast of Pagosa Springs.
The entire project will span several drainages and end near the Blanco Basin Road.
Approximately 1,300 feet of the 22,733-foot project is on National Forest System lands, including the replacement of four poles.
If approved, La Plata Electric will begin construction in late winter/early spring.
Contact District Ranger Kevin Khung at 264-1520 by Oct. 30, if you have any comments regarding this project.
