      This draft ROD documents the Forest Supervisor's intention to select Alternative 2, and the facts considered in reaching his decision. This decision would authorize the project applicant to construct an electric transmission line between Petersburg on Mitkof Island and the city of Kake on Kupreanof Island. The transmission line would be approximately 60 miles long and follow existing roads for 34 miles. Access for construction along the remaining sections of the route would be via shovel trails supported by temporary matting panels.
