Next Steps

As we look ahead at next steps for Colorado’s Power Pathway:

  • We will determine the need for additional public meetings in areas where the preferred transmission line route has not been identified.
  • We will continue incorporating link-specific feedback throughout the routing process.
  • Engineering design work will start in segments where the preferred transmission line route has been identified.
  • The county land use permitting process will start for Segments1, 2 and 3. Additional public input opportunities will take place during public hearings for the land use permit in each jurisdiction.
  • Project representatives will reach out to individual landowners to discuss the preferred transmission line route and easements.
