Winds of Change in Carbon County
Governor, Biden delegates attend TransWest groundbreaking near Sinclair
July 6, 2023
It took more than a decade, but the TransWest Express transmission line will begin construction this year following a "notice to proceed" from the Bureau of Land Management in April of this year.
On June 20, an official groundbreaking held in Carbon County was attended by Governor Mark Gordon along with two Biden Administration cabinet members: Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm and Secretary of the Interior Deb Halaand. Despite being on opposite sides of the political spectrum, all three appeared to agree on investments in energy infrastructure and addressing the climate crisis.
