I would suggest those of you hoping to find jobs get a copy of the draft EIS and make some positive comments. This project will put lots of archaeologists (and other people!) to work.

This is actually an overhead powerline project.  One of many coming down the pike.

But not for a few years, though--it takes a long time to get these things off the ground. Of course, the inventory may happen relatively soon, i.e. a year or two, but it will be years before construction actually starts.

Well duh :-b but might be a decent amount of work for some local (I hope) CRM firm/s with the various routes and re-routes.

Now, now, Dwarmour--no need to be rude! (j/k)

I just said that for the benefit of schmucks like me, who can't seem lately to latch onto a project that lasts more than a few weeks. This one goes clear across my home state, so hopefully it would mean a year or more of survey, site recording, reroutes, mitigation, monitoring, etc. We can only hope!
