Note: The potential energy corridors depicted on this map represent ongoing work by the Agencies to establish energy corridors in 11 Western states as required by the Energy Policy Act of 2005. The corridors are subject to change until they are officially established in August 2007. All officially designated corridors will be in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. The majority of the preliminary energy corridors utilize existing corridors and/or rights-of-way, but there are a small number of potential new corridor locations. Based upon the information and analyses developed int he West-wide Energy Corridor Programmatic EIS, the agencies will designate energy corridors by amending their respective land use plans. Corridors shown on this map are not to scale. Widths of 3,500 feet are currently under consideration, but are too small to be clearly depicted on this map.
