I’m trying to make a corridor between two substations with ArcGIS, a macro corridor and a micro corridor.

I have two questions in this respect and would be grateful for your suggestions.

a) How can I specify, that my corridor must have a minwidth of 100m?

b) How can I make a linestraighting of my costpath within microcorridor?

Thank you very much.

Welcome to GIS-SE! I've assumed that you are using the Spatial Analyst extension to ArcGIS Desktop at version 10.0 and so have modified your tags accordingly. If, for example the version is 10.1 then be sure to change that tag. – PolyGeo May 12 '13 at 11:15
If you have created a path you could turn it into a polyline featureclass then buffer accordingly? – Hornbydd May 13 '13 at 15:39
