    Description

    With the recent approval of numerous large-scale transmission lines and pipelines that are now moving toward construction, it is critically important to ensure that these projects are implemented based on findings and assumptions of their associated impact analyses. Although this seems obvious, it has not always occurred successfully on past projects and can be challenging depending on how analysis findings and mitigation measures are applied and tracked. Specifically, degrees of impact and application of mitigation measures are often described in text and/or on forms that do not specifically spell out what portions of the project features they relate to. This paper focuses on effective and proven methods for analyzing visual impacts for linear projects including structuring the visual impact analyses in ways that will help successfully carry out mitigation measures during design, planning, construction, and reclamation.
