How to create partial transparency?

I have two layers.  The top layer contains a straight line that passes over the bottom layer image.  The line is much longer than the bottom image so only the middle of the line covers the bottom image.  I'd like this part of the line to be partially transparent so you can see the bottom image.

If I highlight this section of the line and change the opacity, it changes for all of the line.  How do I focus opacity changes to only this section of the line?

Split the layer with the line into another layer and use transparency on that. Effectively you will create a copy of the layer. On the original erase the part you want transparent on the copy lower the transparency.

You did but just so you know this is just the simplest method. There are multiple other direction you could take with much cleaner result especially if you have a larger multi-layered  work. But never the less I'm glad you got it :)
