Transco’s public notice turned up this morning; excerpted below is the Columbia County portion of their proposed new power line route:
The Proposed Edic-Pleasant Valley Line departs from the proposed Knickerbocker Substation and proceeds to the south along the 100-foot-wide ROW of the double-circuit Schodack-Churchtown #14 and Greenbush-Hudson #15 115 kV lines. Approximately 2.2 miles south of the proposed Knickerbocker Substation, the line passes into Columbia County and continues in a nearly straight line due south through the Town of Stuyvesant for a distance of approximately 8 miles. After crossing into the Town of Stockport, the line turns to the southeast, crosses U.S. Route 9 and Kinderhook Creek, and again turns due south. The line continues in a southerly direction generally parallel to and approximately 1 mile to the east of U.S. Route 9. The line crosses a small portion of the Town of Ghent less than 1 mile west of the Columbia County Airport. The line continues to follow the 115 kV ROW through the Town of Claverack, passing about 2 miles to the east of the City of Hudson. After crossing Route 9H the double-circuit #8 and #T7 115 kV lines join the ROW just north of the Churchtown Substation. The 150-foot-wide ROW the line is in remains with this configuration of parallel double-circuit 115 kV lines for the next 12 miles through the Towns of Livingston (8.3 miles), Gallatin (1.2 miles), and Clermont (0.7 mile). The total distance in Columbia County is approximately 30.8 miles.
