Maps

Final Selected Route
After receiving input from the public, agencies and other stakeholders, we have made a final route selection. The maps to the right show the final route. To view the route in more detail, simply click on the map. When you have identified what page number your property is located on, click on that page on the index map and you will be taken to the individual page which you can zoom in and out on with Adobe Acrobat Reader. The final selected route is the yellow line.

You may also view these maps in hard copy at the libraries listed on the Public Input page.

If your property is crossed by the 200 foot right of way, you should receive a letter indicating which parcels are crossed, and you will be contacted by a right of way agent within the next few weeks to discuss next steps in the process.

Preliminary Route Options
The map to the right shows the route options that will be presented at the May open houses. The network of routes was determined through evaluation of the study area and stakeholder input.

To view the route options in more detail, simply click on the map. When you have identified what page number your property is located within, click on that page on the index map and you will be taken to the individual page which you can zoom in and out on with Adobe Acrobat Reader. Potential routes and segment numbers appear in yellow. Please reference the segment number when providing feedback on the routes.

Study Area
The map to the right shows the area (within the yellow boundaries) that the project team reviewed when developing the route options. These potential routes were presented to the public at open houses in May 2014 for additional input.

Routing Considerations

Our goal is to select a final route that creates the least amount of disruption and impact to farmers, homeowners, businesses and other property owners. The project team considers many factors in routing the line including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Overall length
  • Access and terrain
  • Visual impacts
  • Proximity to:
