k. Description of Request: Alaska Electric Light and Power Company (AEL&P) proposes to convert 0.3 mile of the Annex Creek development's 12-mile-long, 23-kilovolt overhead transmission line to an underground transmission line. Pursuant to an amendment order issued in 1999, approximately 1 mile of the 12-mile-long transmission line was buried in the summer of 2000. The proposed underground section of transmission line would extend from the previously buried section of line located on the west side of Powerline Ridge and transition back to the existing overhead line near the location of Camp 6. The proposed underground line route would remain within both the Tongass National Forest and the existing project boundary. AEL&P proposes to change the transmission line from overhead to underground due to the harsh weather conditions that regularly damage this section of line.
