FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A judge has refused to delay construction of a major new power line in southeastern North Dakota while an appeal is pending.
The line is part of the CapX2020 project, which is intended to bolster the reliability of the electric transmission network that serves many of Minnesota's largest cities. It will run from Cass County in eastern North Dakota to the St. Cloud and Monticello areas in Minnesota.
The North Dakota Public Service Commission approved the route in September. The Forum reports that the city of Oxbow and 82 people who believe the power line might harm them or their property are appealing the PSC order. They unsuccessfully asked Judge Lisa Fair McEvers to put a hold on the project while that appeal is pending.
